Don't wash your car with the windows open...

Yepp that's what I said. I thought I would take a moment and share a real life story before getting to minis.  I had to take my car to the dealership this weekend for a safety recall and a oil change. Sure  you might think that's normal enough and they even offered to give my little car a complimentary car wash. Woohoo a free cleaning, pretty cool I thought. Until I got my car back and the passenger side of the interior was dripping wet. I did mention interior right..everything from the sun visor, door, seat and floor board. And that's how the conversation of "May I speak with your manager" started. ha

Alright now back to my mini projects. I did get the top floor (3rd floor) frame work up and glued in place this weekend so now I can put the plexiglass on to keep dust out. This also brings me another step closer to having to start on the roof. I know the roof will not take too long to glue in place its just getting started that takes me some time. Its really weird. I love building but the roof always gets me in a slump. lol

I also got the chair kits finished, if you poke the photo you can get a better look. I think I am going to put one in the kitchen and attempt to drape/toss/throw/wad up a apron on it. I have been seeing how some mini folks glue tinfoil on the back of fabric to get it to lay in the positions they want and well i do have tinfoil and fabric. I'm thinking this weekend I'll give it a shot and win or lose I'll let ya know how it goes.  Also I just noticed I have some new followers, let me say a BIG hello to you folks and how happy I am that you decided to follow along on my adventures. I hope you like what you see and if you have any questions, like how I did something just shoot me a email or post a comment.

Thanks again,
Jennybee

I think that fabric turned out great, your chairs are lovely.

Thanks Wyrna, I like how they turned out and that fabric was a bonus to add just a little softness to the look.

Thanks miss Jane, Now I may have to go back and get a full yard of it for future projects. I was soo upset from it, but it's all good now. I just really wanted someone to know what had happened. Now the little car is all dry and a little cleaner on the inside and out. Haha

Me alegra que tu coche se haya secado y haya quedado bien. Yo, cuando quiero poner una tela en su lugar, para que parezca real, la mojo un poco en una mezcla de agua con un poquito de cola blanca, la coloco en su sitio y la dejo secar..Suele quedarme bien..Puedes probar, a ver si te gusta el resultado. Un beso

Hello Maria, I'll have to try that way too next time. Do you cover the area you are going to drape the item on in plastic warp first then position the fabric over it in the way you want it to lay?
