Stash Report & Dollhouse Update

When I posted about my first dollhouse on Thursday, I mentioned that I was hoping to find the original pattern for the furniture so I could recreate it.

Look what showed up in my inbox --

Guess what those furniture patterns are in your grandmothers head.  If you want to duplicate them we may be able to do that.  You can do a lot with 1x2`s and 2x4`s .  That little girl on the floor in red is so cute.  Wonder who she is??????????????
Love You
Grandma

Between the two of us, I'm hoping we can remember most of the little details. There are just a few glimpses of the furniture to be had in that old photograph.

Hubby overheard me talking to Grandma.  Apparently, he never knew that I had two doll houses. Over the past eight years that we've lived here, I've talked about the one in the attic and the one in the sewing room, but he assumed they were one and the same.  I'm not apologizing for either of them. If he hasn't noticed that they were there, they're not creating a problem!

I managed to completely forget to announce the winner of A Roux of Revenge. It's TerryH, who wrote:

Turkey(or chicken)corn chowder recipe I got from my PT lady. It is wonderful. A good mystery is
always welcome. Thanks for the chance.

Nothing in and more than a little bit out. I'd call that a good week, but these days I wouldn't have time to buy fabric and yarn if I wanted to.  Luckily I'm at the point where you've gone so long without buying any new fabric that it's become a habit.

Fabric Used this Week: 2 1/4 yards
