Table Top Fort

This is a Table Top Fort/ House
My new sewing machine has been working overtime.
One king size, flat sheet;
 one brown fitted sheet; 
colorful felt squares;
 black, grow-gain ribbon 
and presto !
 You have a house.
I didn't have time to add curtains and other details.
But I know certain, there are some children, will love it, as is.

Windows * garage * flowers * and a grandma who loves her grandchildren.

I found the tote at Target in the "tote isle" and
 thought it was a perfect place to store the house when not in use.


All my Christmas presents are bought, finished and wrapped.  
Soon, we are heading to Idaho. 
Thanksgiving, a birthday and Christmas celebration's will be all rolled into this visit.
The snow has started to fall. 
In a few more weeks (days?!) we won't be able to drive over until early Spring.
The car is packed to the brim.
Our studded, snow tires are on. We even bought those new 
tire socks that replace chains. They are cool!

I'll be gone for awhile.
(I'm sooo excited!)
Until then, Happy Thanksgiving !


  1. Oh! Have the best time. I'm so happy for you. I'll bet there is a great deal of excitement on the other side of the mountains as well. That project makes a lot of sense!

  2. PS
    Be careful. You may get stuck on the other side. Oh well, we do what we have to do. :D

  3. What a great idea... you're going to get into making these to sell - right??
