Play; Subject matter to be discussed today Sunday, which is after all the day of rest! It start a few days ago discussing Matilda's (16 year old grand daughter) art work with my daughter, she said that Matilda had two projects, one was the making of a patchwork skirt and top and the other was the production of a Disney type house, and she had already found half a house to start the project.
Well I looked and tidied the Georgian dolls house and then thought why don't I start a new house, and looking around eventually decided on a kit call April Cottage. Now this is going to take some time, years in fact but the idea of a project appealed.
Thinking who would live in my cottage and I decided Miss Marple, plus a maid. Now Aril will know this, the kit dollshouse cottages on offer are hardly Allingham type, well unless I want to spend big bucks, but those moss roofed cottages with front gardens overflowing are a particular dream of mine. No Miss Marple lives down South(St.Mary's Mead) with the likes of Midsomer Murder folk who also always live in pretty gentrified cottages and get horribly murdered -so don't go and live in one.
This is the time to wonder about space and building the kit, painting it and then furnishing it, so was my workroom big enough? Just about, I can construct on my desk and use the table that the old house is on. On my desk you see patchworks which will influence the colours.....
I have soft greens and blues in my head, and cream for the cottage but what would Miss Marple have lived with I wonder, and where did she get the money to live in comfortable retirement??
