Woopee, nearly there!! Have finished glueing all the thatch down on both sides, front and back, just the little bit around the dormer window to finish and the stitch effect to be done. I have put sticks on either side of the top section of roof and am waiting on some thread to hand stich a design onto this, in a criss cross pattern. Its annoying cos the patterned part of the roof isnt showing up on camera, but what I did was add a top section ontop of the roof and then cut out circular patterns into this. It shows up really well in the flesh!
Will post a pic of it all finished when Ive done the stitching but wanted you all to see it was coming along.
Just have to find a base board now so I can start the garden, put in some vines etc as i think once the colour goes onto the roof with flowers etc it will really bring the roof to life.
I have a small amount of thatching left, just enough to cover a gable gate entrance , and maybe a fairy outside loo!!!
My stepdaughter commented it looks like the Snow White house .......but dont think theres room for 7 beds up in the bedroom though !!
Also just thought Id post a pic of our 3 youngest dressed up for 50's day at school today. Lola, Reilly and Lacey are all set to have a great day with a party at school to celebrate .
