More Rows and a Bit of Drooling Over Tiny Things



I added five more rows to my collection this week. The biggest challenge might not be getting where the quilt shops are -- it's getting there while the quilt shops are open! Luckily the shop in Bandon was open on Sunday. Sadly, the one in Coos Bay wasn't. But that's okay. I got a pattern I didn't expect to get, and it's a pretty cute one. 

And I got to stop at the dollhouse shop in Lincoln City. Their inventory had changed a lot in the two years since my first visit, but I had fun browsing. See the second dollhouse from the right on the top shelf? That's the same kit as my dollhouse was made from. 


I'm absolutely fascinated by these itty-bitty dollhouse kits, but I know my fingers are too clumsy to tackle one. (And I know where a youtube tutorial for a much simpler one is so I can build my skills a bit for spending serious money on something I'm pretty sure I can't do.)

I took a couple friends to a shop this week. As I was leaving (with my plate, BTW) I said "How come you're open when the sign says you close at noon on Saturday?" The clerk said, "Because it's Tuesday." Apparently I only shop for fabric on weekends!

I love doll houses, too. I have built 3 of them two with my mom, and one with a spooky Halloween theme with my little brother. I still have an un-started kit that is a large 3 story farmhouse, I really want to make it, but I don't have anywhere to put it.

There's a whole amazing world of dollhouse blogs and sites out there. I stumbled across it one day and was absorbed for hours with what people make that is absolutely amazing! So have you done any rows yet? I have a bunch but haven't made one yet!
