In which I make what I think is a really brilliant move.
So, I made good progress on Random Thoughts, and Wednesday night I was closing in on finishing the house at the top, when I realized CRAPCRAPCRAP...the house is TOO LOW by ONE STITCH!!!
The next day I was thinking about what I could possibly do do fix this without frogging the whole thing (higher chimney? But the bottom of the house is still too low and won't line up with everything else...), when it hit me: I could easily modify this house to look like our loft! (OK, so it's a townhouse, but that doesn't have the alliteratory feel when combined with Lott, now does it?) After all, we have two stories with three giant windows apiece...I could just redesign the bottom floor a little shorter (it is, anyway), and then add our deck story with railing and beehive (when you went to Georgia Tech, you cannot refer to anything as a "doghouse"), so it'll be taller. It'll be great! So, that's what I did:
After I frogged the chimneys, roof and bottom story, I noticed that things were lined up next to that "d"...um...like they should have been in the first place. Without me frogging that part. Which meant the house was right in the first place...what?? How could that be? I look at the chart. Back to the linen. Chart. Linen. Chart. Linen. Oh, crap. When I stitched the original house, I left off one row of the roof. That's why it was too short.
