|It looks very one dimensional|
|I do like the black color though. I think it's a nice contrast with the stone.|
So I figured, what the heck, I've got an angle cutter now and a better glue gun, let's dig out the left over shingles from the Gothic Victorian and see how this goes. It's also a much smaller roof. You'll notice I'm not talking about shingles with any of the large houses I've got. Though the angle cutter makes all the difference. Love that thing!
So here's an in progress shot.
|Yeah...I'm not thrilled with the color either.|
So I kept shingling and by Sunday afternoon I was done. I didn't even run out of shingles and that was a concern for a bit.
|The kit has trim to go along the apex of the roof so I don't need to make half shingles Thankfully.|
I used an old bottle and watered it down because I didn't want stark black. Just enough of a tint that I got that contrast with the stone walls back.
|Might still have a bit too much brown.|
By the way, these pictures, all taken with the new Nikon camera that was my Christmas gift from my husband. Isn't it nice how they're all in focus?
In other news, Cap'n Jack our kitten has grown and gone to his first 'Big boy' vet appointment. He now weighs fifteen pounds.
In order to give you some idea of his growth, here are some pictures of him about a month after we found him. Sitting next to his brother on the couch. Very sweet.
|See how big his paws are? That was a clue right there. As big as Helo's and he wasn't even a year.|
|He just cuddles up with them|
|Or as close as he's allowed to get.|
|He still likes his brother, but they're a little big to be sharing the cushion now|
|Perfectly comfortable is what amazes me.|
He's still a sweetheart though. Even if he does think he can put Miho in a headlock so he can return the favor of cleaning her ears.
