A pinch of this a pickle of that

Standard

Still working on the levels and angles for the roof joins and the ridges but between times have played with whatever caught my fancy.

Fixed in what I’ve got so far in this third attic space, added a ceiling and roof support beams. Perhaps need one or one-and-a-half more things in there(?)

Whilst manoeuvering the house pieces I caught sight of this view into the sitting room. I can’t remember what that Penguin paperback on the bureau is but it seems tea is still being served.

Have added a rather ragged feather duster to the woman down the side of the house, thereby giving her the opportunity for busily leaning over the fence shaking out the dust but really seeing what’s going on around and about.
She needs to be careful she doesn’t set fire to those feathers with her cigarette.

Nibbling in the corners

Standard

Been kidnapped by life for a few days, popping my head around the Potting Shed door from time to time to make sure everything was still there as it were.

Yup, still there

Did manage to play or should I say hide in there occasionally.

In the sitting room

In the kitchen

In the boys’ bedroom

and the bathroom – which is where I’m supposed to be

but really ought to finish the tiling, make the shelves and do the doors and windows.

See you next week all being well 😉

 

Back in the flow

Standard

A pool of time coming up

Should be able to stay paddling in it long enough to get to some miniaturing done this week but may have invested in some sort of ‘make you feel odd’ bug in the interim, so here’s hoping.

Picking up where left off

As the Canon Ixus I’ve been using has lost some of its abilities I’ve invested in a new camera.  Working on the basis that, however new it is, it will get messy in the Potting Shed and, aiming to spend as little as was reasonable, I went for an up-dated version of what I’ve already had for about the last ten or twelve years.  Of course the new model has gone all auto and working on the over-rides to get my own preferences for minis is going to take me some time, so please forgive the blurriness of my experimentation while I try to get the hang of it.

Aha!  That sitting room

I’d been putting off all the fixing in place until the bits had come through the post, but today there were no excuses left.  May fiddle around a little more but for the time being this is it.

All together along with a hidden lamp on the right to throw light on face of the figure (can see the very edge of it half-way up the side of the third photo in above group)

On to bathroom and adding the bits it needs.

Quick dash – interim report

Something like this?

Well, not quite like this first photo.

Her embarrassment was so great I just had to do that skirt, well, and then the sleeves, belt and earings too. Here, posing, her skirt is ballooned out as she has been sitting for some time.

She’s come for a nice chat over a cup of tea

but if she doesn’t take care she’ll have poured it all over the place

Handbag to be made and everything to be fixed down with the missing milk and knife added too.  Still waiting on the odd bit for the bureau and must do the photos for the bookshelves.  Oh, and find the charcoal for the coal bucket.

Must dash – have a good weekend 😉
