Wednesday and Thursday's Work

It's time to relax after running errands and making minis. I've got a pint of stout and an interesting concoction for rice, ginger, sweet onion, beef heart, and Thai sweet chili sauce that tastes like an Asian version of haggis. I like it.

Yesterday I stained pieces for a small bed to put in the Greenleaf and added more accessories to their final destinations.

Today I assembled the bed.You can see my pint behind it. After I'm sure the glue is dry I will hit it with spray varnish... probably tomorrow.

I also found a second dog for the Greenleaf. Her name is Petunia.
I decided it was hard to tell see was a she, so I gave her a bow. I thought of Marsha while I was doing this, so I chose pink! ;-)
Isn't she pretty? :-)

I might still give her a collar. Not sure. If I do I'll use a strip of black leather leftover from covering the Poe project and put sparkly bits on it. Aren't you proud of me, Marsha? ;-)

Tonight I'm looking for solid color fabric that isn't yellow to dress the mattress with.

Tomorrow I need to finish the baseboards and get the rafters in place. Then maybe I can finish the outside of the building, since there isn't much left to do for it.

Saturday I'm gone all day to a Rendezvous. No minis for me. Sunday I might start trying to make Patch and Petunia's owner...maybe.

That's all for now. I've got quite a bit to get done before Monday's deadline. I haven't even dug through the garage for a base to landscape and set the building on. Ugh. I will probably do that tomorrow too.

At this point if I get it presentable to enter the contest, cool. If not, at least I've got a good chunk of work done straight on one project. That's a rarity around these parts. ;-)

I am slow to the game. I'm just realizing that your 'Greenleaf' is the contest house. I can't wait to see it done! I love all your details so far, and how fun that you've been showing us glimpses.

Mine is so boring right now, I don't know if I can make it contest worthy by Monday. But I sure can't wait to see all the other entries!

Love the new pup- I do think she would look grand with a sparkly collar though. I cannot wait to see the Greenleaf- I am very curious! Have a fabulous weekend!
