Craft Club results

Hello All and thank you for visiting
As I mentioned on Thursday here are a few pictures of the "makes" 

Here is our winner, Paulene's "view" of school days. Suffice it to say, she does make the most fantastic miniatures. She uses all sorts of bits and pieces to create items. For example, certain drug blister packs make kitchen sinks. Notice the tiny books in the book cases and blackboard and the outside loos! The wheelbarrow, hen house, well everything really. The pebbledash walls are made with painted couscous!
Here's another of her makes that one of the other ladies had quilted for her. It is an i-spy quilt for her grandson. It has images to spy on both sides

Other makes included a shoe bag, book bags to disguise their reading of "Lady Chatterley's Lover", a pencil drawing of a "little schoolgirl devil" and this particular lady even brought in her mum's arithmetic book dated 1926.
Phew! Sorry it's along and piccie heavy. But I hope you enjoy and I look forward to your feedback. Busy weekend ahead, lots of Salsa dancing. To those of you that have had a tough week - take care Big hugs to everyone Thank you for taking the time to visit.
I'll be posting a card on Tuesday 


  1. Good morning Karen,
    I had a comment all written out and it went off into Cybre Space.......Grrrrr!!!
    Start again:-
    Oh! My! Giddy! Aunt!! that School House is absolutely AMAZING!!!
    Everything about it is just wonderful. Better not let my hubby see that. He would be asking me if I could manage something like that for his Model Railway. I do make "kits" for him but I certainly could never in a Month of Sunday's manage anything so fantastic.
    The Quilt is stunning as well, perfect bright colours for a wee one to study and learn.
    Have a great weekend

  7. WOW! to the schoolhouse, it's almost exactly like the one I used to go to in Budbrooke Warwickshire, when my father was stationed there. I remember the outside loos and the games painted on the playground.
    And the quilt, what a dream that is. And a game to boot.

    oh my what fab creations.
    They sure are very talented.
    That school house is amazing, and very perfectly crafted, and I do so admire anyone that can quilt, as I can't sew straight to save my life.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
