Of course there are still quite a few things that I need to work on:
like adding some string lights,
oh and finishing that table top,
and a few other things!
The week end is just a few days away...
I will leave you with this cool pic of Brick Master in his glory:
3rd place seeding, 3rd place double elimination, 2nd place overall.
(the power of a good presentation!)

and buildings, the last thing remaining is Summer:
For June, our boy doll enjoys a hot dog on his picnic.
For July, I went a little rogue and made the doll hold a French flag,
it is supposed to be an American flag,
but it is really hard to make it accurate...
and I am French after all!
For August, it is shopping time for back to school outfits!
It is one of my favorite block.
Now that the top is completed, I need to quilt it all,
which might take a while,
all the ironed on dolls and clothes need to be stitched down,
and all the details need to be added....

But I would like it to keep some of the old character and color difference
after all there are a lot of holes in the boards.
I will have to apply some kind of stain to protect the wood.
Obviously the top boards are not yet attached to the base,
I ran out of screws, and they will not be delivered for a few more days.
I am using a mix of boards: 2x6, 2x4 and 2x8.
I think it makes it more interesting, and also that is what I could get out of the benches!

I am so glad I went to the store to chose it,
otherwise I would have probably chosen the smaller one,
and I think it would have been to small for the wall.
It should arrive later this week, may be on time for the week end....
Oh yeah, there is also painting to take care of...
dirt and drainage to address, the grass that needs to grow....
the list goes on!
There are a few more weeks!
