Finished the couch, dressed 2 dolls and hung the pot rack

Busy busy thats me!! Since I last posted I made a dress for the doll in the kitchen. I still need to give her some sort of boots but for now she is at least happy to not be in her undies! The other doll next to the couch is a dress I got off etsy from Stuck in the Mudd which I think looks great as well. I also finished the couch I had been working on. Its another Chippendale kit and I was not really feeling that default blue fabric that came with it so I thought the black with little swirl dots would fit in fine. I also got the pot rack up in the kitchen. You cant see it but I used a round filigree disk. I bent the edges so when I glued it to the ceiling it would not lay flat. This way when I hung the pot rack I could turn the s hook that the chain hangs on to it would not touch the back wall. This also allows me to be able to easily swap out the rack if I need a bigger one in the future. I went a little etsy crazy not long ago and got some signs from Katie's Clay Corner I do love her Halloween signs and some other items which after I take some new photos I will post. You can see the Hocus Pocus one in the kitchen, the other one I got is a witches broom and says if the broom fits fly it!! The kids stole it and put in the upstairs bedroom where they have all the Hogwart house banners. Thats it for now, I'm off to finish carving pumpkins.  Have a great HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone!

Thanks for the comments everyone.
Jane... I hope everything is well with you. Being down south I completely understand power outages.
Ara - I really like the fabric too, I think I ended up with a yard so I will have plenty left for more projects.
Wyrna - this was my first attempt at dress making and I think the fabric was very forgiving. Now if I can dress the others including a child and 2 males I will be good to go. Lol Have a great week everyone!
