Waiting For The Trees

I have been busy making another nutshell cottage. Cutting the braces for the roof (over the front door) was a bit tricky. They are about 6 mm long and had to have a 45 degree angle cut on both ends.

This house will have a furnished bedroom on the second floor. Visible through the octagon 360 degree surround windows. Just one problem... I am totally out of acorn caps in all sizes.

While I wait for supplies to fall, I thought I would make some stick pins using the front entrance of this cottage design. They will be just over one inch tall. I thought it would be fun to wear on the lapel of a wool jacket with jeans.
