Housey Housey

I saw these houses on Retro-Mama's blog and couldn't resist making one or two, its become an addiction.

Then I made a 'house' cover for the BQL monthly challenge to keep the dust out of Keith's mini printer.


He takes this with him to family celebrations and prints out photos so that people can have a copy straight away.  As a thank you he made me these:



A threadstand for the larger cops and a cute little bobbin boat to hold the large 830 bobbins.  These won't fit into any of the bobbin stands I have.  The eagle eye amongst you will notice that the bar has 4 thread feeds but the stand only room for two cops.  That's because I found my old 730 stand and wanted to use the top but keep Keith's beautifully turned base.  It works fine whether I put the cop on the stand or beside it.

I've almost finished my January CQJP -' Red One'  and will post a photo in my next blog.  In the meantime I'm off to make another house.

Houses are darling, pincushions? and the printer cover is so cute. I love the "ivy" on it.
Hugs!

What a nice thread stand, does he make them for sale.

I love your house.

Thank you for the link Annette, I could do with making some covers for my sewing machine(s) to keep the dust off and these would be lovely scaled up.
