After a few last minute cancellations we ended up with nine crafty folk around the kitchen table tackling Trixi's Tiny Tavelling Doll's Houses last night in aid of Girls Night In for the Cancer Council.
Bowls of supplies dotted the very bright pink tablecloth (the colour chosen in honour of the occasion, not personal preference!)
Ribbons ready to go with a 'snap' attached - so that if anyone pulls on your doll house it will just come off, or was it merely an excuse to use my new snap press, you decide!
The inital order turned to crafty mayhem as ric rac, ribbon, felt, cotton, glue, sequins, scissors, beads and buttons were all handed around among the cups of tea and glasses of wine.
I've shown the front and back of each house in case you want to take away some of the ideas for inspiration and make your own.
*Please note that not all these houses are for small children so some do have little pieces on them!

Netta considers herself not crafty at all and surprised herself with her efforts, much to the delight of her small daughter who was a very happy girl this morning.
Check out the garden complete with carrots for Felcia's veggie loving son, and Julie's sparkly flower garden, which one of our girls said looked like it had fairydust on it.
Check out the super-cute beaded bed linen for their dolls and the stitching on Jacki's 'wood grain' door.
Thanks to all the girls for a great night in chatting, crafting and eating, and in the process raising several hundred dollars for the Cancer Council.
Thanks also to Trixi for allowing me to share her great idea with my friends.
