Bits of this and that ~~~

Little bits are progressing on a few different projects.

That is a spiral scrumble to be added to a few other scrumbles (ok, LOTS of other scrumbles) to create something -- I don't know what it will be until I have few more of them made, then it will tell me what it wants to be -- a bag, a hat, a garment, a wall hanging, whatever.

Back into drawing again. A quick hand sketch for practice.

The Pilli Pala Dolls House

I don't know how other people have got on constructing this dolls house themselves. The instructions are terrible. The right hand wall of the kitchen is the first piece they tell you to put together, and nowhere does it tell you that the uprights need to be attached with space bellow floor level, hence the 'gap' on mine. I will have to saw that much off the top now and glue it at the bottom. 

All the kitchen walls are up now, and the entrance hall next to the kitchen is almost done.
The checkered floor is a paper sheet that came with the house. Not sure that I like this look,  so I shall probably create some other flooring (and a better quality) than this. 
I think a wood floor would look better - watch this space, lol.

Auditioning some wood strips for flooring. I will remove the bent pieces from this pile first though.

That's my lot for now.
See you in the next post.

Happy Crafting


  1. Great drawing! How I wish I could draw.

    I think your idea of a wood floor is great. Tge black and white reminds me of a 50's kitchen.

    1. Thanks Marsha, yes the check tiled floor is not really suitable for my ideas for this kitchen, I want it to be a soft-modern kitchen (if there is such a thing, lol).

  2. Nice scrumble - it's been awhile since you've done any of these I think and I did miss them. And I like the idea of a wood floor in your room - not a fan of that checkerboard either.
