No more (ahem, additional) projects. Right? (laughing). This year, my building was going to be an 18th century English cottage/Georgian with a saddlery shop on the first floor catering to fox hunters. To kill some time while waiting for our dog to be finished at the vet, my husband and I went to breakfast and still had some time after that. So we went to a resale shop we had never been to, just down the street from the vet. We walked around and when we came to the washing machines, I stopped. My mind was processing something I thought I saw on the floor as we came in. A dollhouse? Had to have been a Barbie house. Or something like that. Plastic? I went back and examined it. No, it was wood and 1:12 scale. The more I looked, the more I liked it. Then told myself I did not NEED another project. To leave it there. The lady working there said it was $50 and came with a bag of furniture. FOOOM! It was in my car. The dog had to share the seat with it going home.
This is a project for the Upton House's doll's house. https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/upton-house-and-gardens/features/calling-crafters-and-artist-to-contribute-to-uptons-dolls-house Four stained glass windows done in the old style of painted stained glass. The first step is to make a drawing of the lead lines and the basic design so that can be traced with glass paint onto a piece of glass and fired in a kiln to make it permanent. The deadline to finish is tight so I better move along. Did all 4 drawings today. This is one of them.
