Tales from Saturdays Crop...lessons in building a derelict house


The afternoon class at crop was to build a beautiful little house What I produced was less perfect and more like a derelict house see photo on right I am attempting to make it look a little better, I could always sit on it, that might help Will I be making another, no, did it nearly make me swear, yes. I have messed with house since so will post photo soon of my attempts at improving it, well lets face it it could not get any worse lol The other ladies made very nice houses



I have also been crocheting some more cushion covers










Also been having a little place with Tim holtz distress and some new stamps

The house doesn't look that bad Alma - I once tried making a gingerbread house (from a kit) - now that really did look derelict!
The cushion cover is fab and wow! to your Tim Holtz creation!
