He will keep guard so that nobody takes anything else whilst I am working.
She is actually three inches taller than she was(in one inch scale size). She has gone from five feet three inches to five feet six... With basically the same hairdo as before.
The dress just makes her look dumpy. I think that part of it is the fabric that she picked. I tried to talk her out of it, but she said that it would make it so that, if she spilled anything, it wouldn't show. Thus eliminating the need for me to make more aprons...
Kind of her to think that way, but I am sure that this outfit is not going to last long. It just doesn't do anything for her.
Now about Zar... He found one of his old vests and wants another one like it. It is to far gone to save...
See that scroll of paper in his hand... I am not going to even look at it until I talk Tessie out of that awful dress.
Sorry Zar, you are next in line. Just a little further down than before...
Back to work. See you tomorrow.

By a couple of hours in, I realized that she was just going around in circles.
New bones? Check. New muscles? Check.
Then she peeled off her old hair, all by herself... I knew that couldn't be good...
She then announced, "The bun has to go! I want something short and modern...
To that she announced, "Let me be the judge of that!"
So... I put on a new crop of hair and gave her a haircut. It looked pretty cute, but I made the mistake of telling her to go try it on the broom.
She promptly pulled a pair of pantaloons over her arms and a skirt from an old dress on her lower half...
By that time she had exchanged the bloomers for an old petticoat with her head stuck out the top and her arms at the bottom...
I called Zar out of the room and had a conference with him... He is pretty smart sometimes...
He suggested that he handle the situation.
Then he told her to come in and apologize to me and humbly ask me to put her hair back in a bun, so that she could see when she was flying...
Darned if it didn't work. She came back in, teary eyed and actually did what he suggested...
The only problem is... I will have to start all over tomorrow morning and do it all again. I didn't really want a do over...
I do believe that Zar is hoping that I get it done in a hurry. He announced after she finished... "Oh. By the way, I need a new pair of pants, a shirt, a new vest and a hair cut! And maybe you could get rid of the gray patches in my hair whilst you are at it.
I can't win. See you tomorrow for another bout with fabric and hair.

I had to go to Wednesday Witches today. That meant I had to hold off on Tessie's makeover.
When I got back, I presented her with the jewelry and everything was fine... She put the necklace around her neck. Strung one of the earrings through her hair... No pierced ears for her.
She started to put the other one on, but she dropped that one in the carpet... Needle in a haystack much?
She looked for a while. Then she hired Zar to help by bribery... Cookies are always good for that when she wants help from Zar...
I was her next target. A big "Please Help Us!"
Then a "Come on Casey. We need help."
The only problem is... None of us could find it... Yup. I even got down on hands and knees and helped for a while. No luck. And I didn't even get a cookie. I guess that tomorrow, everybody in the place will be looking for her earring or I am going to have to make another one...
That would probably take less time than searching the rug. I am going to suggest that after I finish here.
Wish me luck. If we don't find it, the bribe is off and I am going to be Casey, the hair stylist, the dress maker and the jewelry maker tomorrow... Oh well... It was a good try.
See you tomorrow.

So. That gave me some time to mess around without interference. A whole day to myself!
See the pretty book with the black and white cover? That is now Tessie's appointment book.
Actually it's a book full of quarter inch graph paper... Just don't tell her that.
I just wanted to see what a new freebee would do.
See the gray beige liner in the book? I found it at the big Walmart here in town. It is actually an eight and one half by eleven paint sample with a sticky back. They are free to take home and try on your wall. They are "repositionable". It seems to stick pretty good for something that is supposed to be removable... I see possibilities for mini walls...
When I opened the old book, I remembered how irritating the gift wrap that I used for the inside of that one was. Not a lot of fun to work with.
Now all I have to see is how this one holds up.
I found this pattern for a quarter scale chair and couch in the other book.
I might just have to run that through the blog with directions later. I don't know how many are interested in 1/4" scale furniture.
These are very easy and if you want to learn, just give a comment. I don't think that the directions are any place else on the blog...
Back to ignoring Tessie.
See you tomorrow.

She also found more unfinished baskets and books...
Tomorrow at the latest." She knows that we are going over to April's later today... That will hold her off for 24 hours. At least I hope it will anyway.
Zar and Spike found THREE boxes labeled "Steampunkery". They want in on the deal If one of the Terrible Two and a half gets something the rest wants something too!
The three of them got their heads together and whispered for a while then Tessie came to me with the list... Hers first. New clothes and hairdo... That should be do-able tomorrow.
I am not so sure about the other two. They want me to start doing stuff for the Bizarre Bazaar. Zar wants the Bazaar and Spike wants a doghouse with (are you ready for this?) with a time machine included... Hold your breath boys! This may take a while...
I am off to get ready to go to April's house.
See you tomorrow.

On second thought, maybe it would be better if you didn't...
Another bunch of stuff to finish... Tessie is right behind me with a whip and a chair.
At least these don't have to be finished.
I confess. I didn't even open the door until I took the photos for the blog today... I am hiding out in the bedroom, doing beadwork and watching Korean Dramas. Don't tell Tessie!
I am just not in the mood to tackle any more of those drawers. Every one I open is scarier than the last... I think that I need a few days off...
Well, maybe one more drawer before I quit for the day...
See you tomorrow.

Yup. The wicker drawer. I heard noises coming from there this morning...
When I got her out of there, she managed to zap a chair and table out too... Mind you, she couldn't remember how to get herself out, but a table and chair? No problem.
This is what they looked like when she zapped them...
I didn't ask where they are going. I assume that they are Tessie's.
I am afraid that if I ask why I am finishing them, she will have a L-O -N-G explanation, that will involve a new building and more furniture... It is smarter to just keep my mouth shut!
I am going to finish the chair anyway. I may have some use for it in the future. Then I will be ahead of the game. One table and one chair ahead!
Back to work.
See you tomorrow.
