Monday's making (mostly made up)

I finished the cushions (sort of, they still need to be stitched up after stuffing).
Six unstuffed  dolls' house miniature cushions, in shades of blue and white, on an outstretched hand.
I completed the squabs for the benches (well, not quite. I only finished one set and they're taped together at the back where you can't see). 
Modern miniature padded bench in blue and white, with toning cushions, displayed on a full-sized sewing machine.
And the Bluebird Cafe is done.
One-twelfth scale modern miniature cafe scene, in blue and white with a bird theme.
Detail of a a menu and jug of daisies on a table in a one-twelfth scale modern miniature cafe scene.
 (You know, unless you zoom out and notice all the bits that most definitely aren't done.
View of a one-twelfth scale cafe scene, with one corner perfectly arranged, and the rest of the room a mess of  various components and full-sized tools.
Or, indeed, wait long enough and watch the 'done' bits slowly undo and the whole thing trash itself).
View of a one-twelfth scale modern miniature cafe scene, in blue and white with a bird theme. A display shelf has fallen off the wall, with the contents having knocked over several other components of the scene, and edned up on the floor.
Maybe today I'll actually really finish it?

I'd like to visit bluebird cafe when its finished! Love the breakfast menu on the table! There are so many great details going on with the bird motif. :) The wire cages you posted about previously are going to look awesome in here!
I have so many miniatures at this stage, all being temporary held up... sometimes in the middle of the night I hear a crash and know the museum putty has finally given up. ;)

Thanks for the encouragement: now I really *do* have to finish it, don't I?

I completely understand about the middle-of-the-night crashing sounds: I used to wake up freaked out and thinking that it was a burglar, but then I learnt to lie still, wait for something that sounded like footsteps, and if nothing happened I figured it was just something miniature falling over somewhere :-D
