one day to go, have you made a comment?

Hi all
well you have one more day to comment, I will be doing the draw tomorrow, be lucky.

I had a great day yesterday and got lots done, I put the windows and door frame in, put on the roof, was lucky with the roof, I did not have to make to much adjustments, it fitted quite well, I ma now onto the attic space, I am going to make this the show room, as I did not have room to display the dog beds in the shop. I am nearly finished now. Just a few more bits to do to the outside, some labels to make and I need to find a name for my shop, any suggestions?

I also tackled some small projects that I had lying around.
I finished the pram, I was really impressed with the snakeskin paper I used to decorate the pram, it was alot easier than leather or material that I usually use, I have made a note to check out the paper in my local carft shop to see what they have, Trip to town coming up I think.

I had a sliegh bed, I had been looking at this for some time trying to decide what to do with it, so I repainted it, at first I did a pale blue, but did not like it, so i repainted it pink, then painted white over it and distressed, I then got some pretty pink paper I had, ( see paper fixation ) and covered the ends of the beds, I then made the covers and pillows, I hand sew everything and always make my beds so that the covers can be removed, for filling the pillows I use small railway ballast, my dad gave me it and it works really well for filling, this helps them to look more realistic I think.

I finished the pram, I made a matching basket to sit on the bottom of the pram and a little bag that hangs from the handle, thgen just added some baby bits.

So you can see I had a good day.

I still have to put the wood trim on, and the front door
