Here’s what Mel writes about this month’s collage:
After I had studied Mary Ellen’s house for a while, I knew what I wanted to do – embroidery! I used to do petit point about a million years ago, and I still have all my flosses and threads and needles. That flower box below the picture window seemed perfect for it! The roses on the right were done with silk ribbon as well. I used a tiny metal mesh for the screen door – another new addition. I love finding new “building materials” for these wonderful houses!
