Happy village

vil·lage (v l j) noun. 1. A small group of dwellings in a rural 
area, usually ranking in size between a hamlet and a town.


This week, several new dwellings have been built sewn.  A few new trees even grew popped up!  A week or so ago I begged asked if anyone out there wanted to make me a wonky house or a wonky tree to help my little community grow.  Can you believe I had nineteen amazing volunteers!  Thank you - you will all be entered into a draw at the end of the summer.

Thank you to Muriel for building me a perfect(ly) wonky house.  The roof is very cool!

 Thank you to Jo for growing me these totally happy wonky trees that seem to be dancing and wiggling!

 And thank you to Turid for building me a solid pair of houses and growing this perky pair of trees!

This is already shaping up to be quite an international village - I have wonky houses/trees from England, Norway and the Netherlands.  Thank you so much!!  I can't wait to see what is built next!  

Happy wonky... I mean Wednesday!

P.S. If anyone else would like to sew a wonky house or a wonky tree to help expand my little village, please let me know in the comments and I can send you my address!  Let's have a house party!!!

Ooh, you've just reminded me... I read your initial request and meant to reply. I'd love to build a wee wonky house for your village too. Please email me the details :-)

How big (approx) do you want your wonky trees & houses? I will try to get one done before the Retreat x
