Never put off … what you’ve already forgotten to do

Standard

meanwhile “quack”

Thought you might like this egg cup ‘scene’ – looking a bit put upon?

NB:  if you turn on the lights in the ‘house’ always fully check at the end that you’ve turned them off – really off.

It would be good if the added blocks of the house – great hall extension, or porch, street or storerooms block – could be linked by action or activity of the figures using them.  Most are in place and the great hall ones are already chosen but still not done and dusted and I couldn’t figure out why — until today when I started on them.

View of all four of the workmen in action so far. There’s still a load of tree bits to go on some of that roof.
One day.

I do find the very lovely Heidi Ott dolls are far better at millipede impressions than other dolls when it comes to stitching and gluing clothes on.

Whatever am I on about!?

Have you ever added permanent clothing to a small doll?  I don’t know how you go about it but I use a mix of pre-stitching or gluing of items or parts without the doll and building other parts of the clothes on the doll directly.

One doll hopefully has two arms, two legs and one head.  That makes five appendages that you can get your thread wrapped around or can glue to the wrong bits of cloth.  Pipe cleaner limbed dolls can do this and occasionally the limbs can fall off but overall they are generally more willing to be moved out of the field of needle and glue fire than the Ott strongly made ladies and gents.

The two figures from the roof that need attention should have been done today but I only got the one done and in place.  Very stubborn article that he was.

Any mini-ing tomorrow will involve wrestling his friend into some clothes, I suspect.  So far he’s got pants.  Well, it’s a start.
