The construction crew returned to my castle today :-) Wish the stars were out in the sky, but maybe a fused one tomorrow as its all sewn together now :-)

My castle has a little middle age pread going on towards the top, but its all squared up and works for me :-)

Its about 20X 23 inches, so not huge... I am glad I don't have to climb all the stairs that must be inside it though -- or pay the hydro bill given the number of rooms with lights on! :-)

I've been toying with a couple of ideas around this castle. One would be a fun fire breathing dragon in the sky... I'd need to find the right fabric and do a fused applique. I don't have the right fabric in my collection, so I think this idea is likely to burn up before happening.

The other idea is words -- specifically "In my Father's house there are many rooms". I'm concerned that that may be too many words for the castle size though...

I'm also thinking I may add a large fused door or two on the right hand bottom panel area -- I think the current door will get pretty swallowed up when I add more fabric on that side, and it feels a little small for a castle of this size...

How about a moat in front of the castle with a small dragon coming out of the water? It could be a baby dragon with a small burp of fire? Love the castle!

This is neat. Very fun. I think it needs the kingdoms flag flying up there from one of the turrets.

wonderful castle. That fabric is perfect for the stone. love all the little windows. I think the words would be just fine, going all the way around...

Donna - it's wonderful. I think you are right about the door. And I agree - words round the outside.
