I have been so busy trying to finish writing a book that I haven’t had time to do much in the mini world.

However, I am shingling the Fairfield as I can. I absolutely hate shingling so it’s slow… TV shows help!

I finished the back; now I’m working on the front (as you see), and the tower. I have two sides of the tower done (will trim the edges), two sides to go.

Have only a tiny bit done on the right side (below).

A few more TV shows might do the trick. So nice that I can watch them on my laptop while I glue and stick, glue and stick.

I’ll be painting them a dark wash when I’m done. I experimented with stain–it looked terrible with the house colors. Dark gray or black it will be.

So it goes!
