Lady is the House, II

Today I finished the plywood house previously shown on this recent post. (Red autumnal leaves added for the pleasure of Northern Hemisphere viewers.)
I very much enjoyed adding the dotted curtain detail to the windows.

A scan of the little legs.

And -- bonus -- here's a head and arms which were going to be attached to the roof of the house. However after I slotted in the legs I thought that it looked complete, and perhaps more interesting: I think that often it's better to give the viewer a little bit of work to do. The best thing is that now I have another half finished piece. Yippee!! Hmmm...now I'll enjoy working out what to use for her body...
In case anyone is wondering, the reason why this post is titled Lady is the House, II is because there's a Lady is the House I, here.
