Name: Charlotte P. Swift
DOB: July 12, 2008
Weight: Don’t know. But she seems pretty light to me.
I’d like to first thank Beata for posting such a great tutorial on her blog. THANK YOU!
Second, thanks a million to my darling husband who did all the grunt work (sawing, drilling, etc…) You are so sweet! And finally, thanks to Genevieve for loaning me her drill. It worked great!
Here’s Markus drilling the yarn holders. He said the PVC drilled just fine. The tricky part was drilling them straight. He drilled one connecting bit so crooked that we had to turn it around and drill it on the other side…
I didn’t use any PVC pipe glue on Charlotte because all the pieces seemed to fit snuggly into their connectors. In her tutorial, Beata said that she used some glue on the X join. I’ll try winding a hank of yarn first before cracking open the glue…
I have yet to try Charlotte out because we’re still missing the spacer. But no worries. I’ve only been to one hardware store so far. I need some shoes, so next time I’m at DSW I’ll pop on over to the Lowe’s. I bet they have a spacer.
