See, I'm not as daft as I look! I do have the odd brain wave, this one came to me last night. I didn't want to start measuring each brick, seemed more sensible to temporarily stick them into place, the masking tape provided me with the means to line them up, then it was on with the paint, trying to get into all the nooks and crannies. This does mean that there will be no room for the shutters.
The sofa is coming along... okay it does look a bit worse for wear here, but that is because it isn't glued together. I found some foam, but while it works for the seating, it isn't quite right for the arms. This is also my first attempt at anything like this. I found some foam tape, but it is too gungy. I also need some fabric glue. Just need to source some thin foam, or wadding. I would like to make as much of the furniture as I can, I'm sure with a bit of trial and error I may be able to fit out the kitchen.
It is time consuming, but that has more to do with the poor quality of the wood. I've been painting, then sanding, using some modelling paste to try to get a smooth finish, or as smooth as I can.
I'm happy that Harvey is at last happy about his food. No idea why I thought that the plastic food bowls might be the cause, they are washed regularly, in fact I have four which rotated, so he always had a clean bowl. But his little nose is more sensitive than mine, so maybe he was picking up an unpleasant smell, I now seem to have a content cat. Peace at last, can it last... who knows, Harvey does appear to be a law unto himself.
Very humid here, horribly sticky. Rain set in around lunchtime, and it got windy, our typical summer! Might have known, I got new sandals, hardly worn them! Mind you the memory foam skechers are getting plenty of use, I could wear them all the time. Well must go sort out the recycling, bin day tomorrow, neighbour has put bins out for me, now just need to put the papers out. Think it is also time for a cuppa.
Thanks for stopping by.
