I've also done some things you can't see. I put glue (Aileen's Tacky Glue) around the back side of the right door along the edge. It'll have dried well by the time I cut out this piece to attach it. I added another piece of wire to the door's hinge edge as well so there are four attachment places instead of just two. It seemed more secure that way.
I've taken an old advertising magnet down from the refrigerator (one with a 2009 calendar on it) and cut two strips of magnet from it. I'll use those to make the door stay closed. And I went fabric shopping. I picked up a bit of pale blue chiffon with silver dabs of paint on it to back the right door's underside so it doesn't show off the back side when open.
I just need to do a bit more on this piece before I can trim the canvases for finishing. I am finishing up the area just below the roof line with a couched line of #8 perle held down by long and narrow cross stitches. After that I need to add a few more tent stitches above the roof, but I think the stitching will be done by then.
This is on track to be finished this weekend. HURRAH!
