  1. What's everyone working on?

    The glue holding the first floor walls and floors together finally dried. A couple of the spots dried crooked. A couple of spots didn't glue well and came undone.  I need to just suck it up and reglue the entire thing but I'm sure that it'll dry just as crooked since one of the pieces is just a little warped. I'm likely going to smoosh some glue in to hold the walls together and then just sand to make the divider wall fit. I should have glued it already but that's how it goes.  It was just done enough that I could play around a little tonight with some furniture odds and ends. I have a spinning wheel and a treadle sewing machine for it. I want to make a navajo loom, a floor loom, and a great wheel for it as well. Of course, then I'll need a cone holder and lots of shelving for all the yarn and fiber that one needs for the craft room that I'm envisioning. I spent several hours looking at pictures online of looms to convince myself that I can make some ok enough replicas if I would just stop being intimidated. It's mostly simple. 
  2. What's everyone working on?

    There is actually a dollhouse shop here in town so I spent most of my morning getting over there and browsing. Came home with the windows that I needed for the first floor. I need to un-warp one of the walls before I can start thinking about gluing the shell together. I'll get on that tonight because I want to at least have the first floor shell started so that I can start playing with some of the furniture that's in the stash.

  7. Yes, the mini bug is definitely a chronic condition. I was 4 the first time I saw anything in small scale but it was so memorable and so massive that I can still remember bits and pieces of it. http://www.madurodam.nl/en/    I'm thinking that I'll start with building a navajo loom. That one should be pretty easy. Then I'll move on to the slightly more tricky floor loom.    I just would really like to build the fiber studio that I can't have. :)
  8. You are my new favorite person. Now I wish the house shell was here rather than in Kansas but I have the box with all the ruined, oddly shaped mouldings here and now I can actually start dreaming about this again. Perhaps you have an idea of how much you  just made my day.
