More Weekend Projects (yay for studio ceilings)

We did a little more work on the dollhouse, which is about 90% complete, and just mostly needs decorating at this point. I also started work on a suspended “reading nest”. The rigging needs to be fine-tuned still (parts are static and parts are dynamic, so it’s not hard to adjust), and it needs upholstery (that’s just a blanket), as well as a curtain that attaches to the top ring. I’ll probably get something cool custom printed at spoonflower, who let you print on 54″ wide upholstery fabric among other things.

    BTW I may completely rebuild the chair using metal cable. As with the dollhouse, these are first attempts, and I’ve learned so much and spawned so many new ideas making them…

    It’s definitely been a hit with Nefarious, which as a result means she’s been doing more reading at home. Not that she doesn’t already read lots, but more is always good.

    But I really do think I’m going to rebuild it in metal soon. I doubt it will take long and it will mean that I don’t have to worry as much about adjusting the rigging to get it even.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
