I bit off more than I could chew with my project and have burnt the candle at both ends to get it done! It all took much longer than I thought, and just kept growing and growing, I couldn't stop adding things! But I am very happy with it. It's a little house scene on the theme of sewing. I've always looked longingly at things like this on blogs and in magazines. I am much more of 'pretty' crafter and although I love looking at it, find the whole altered thing quite hard, but like pringles, once I popped I couldn't stop!
Emma has her beedy eye on it as well and is a bit upset that it's all stuck down, so I promised her I'll get another house and decorate it with her and she can put in moveable things that she would like to play with.
