A little while ago we found a piece of curvey wood in the shed. It was put to one side as I thought it might be useful for something. Few weeks later I was watching an electric advert and lightbulb moment....houses don't need to be in a straight line they can be curvey. (the ad is houses and gardens balanced on round spheres, you've probably seen it)
Starting to paint the bits.
A 3d Quirky seaside town!
The trees are made from material and matchsticks. The boat is a little bit of wood, whittled down by HH and his pride...the lighthouse! It measures approx 16" long and 6" high. It's now residing on my mantlepiece. So you can get inspiration from anywhere, even adverts. (It doesn't look anything like the electric ad, but set off an idea)As I rummaged into the woodpile to see what else there was I pulled out a small piece of plank which HH planed down for me so I am now doing another small 3d village which is in a straight line! He said it would look good as a local tourist spot that we have here. Hmm don't know about that but it has set me on another train of thought!
I have linked up with Make it Monday's blog http://www.1stuniquegifts.co.uk/blog/ so take a peek at what people have been upto.
I don't know if there are any quilters out there that are looking to do a project (especially those that are new to quilting, as she is new herself). A lovely lady that I know, would like people to join her in making a wall hanging quilt. The link is here if you would like to read about ithttp://lacehearts.blogspot.com/2012/02/quilt-swap-progress-on-block.html and she would love to hear from you if you would like to join her.
