Nov. ATC Swap At The Grind

Nov. 21 was the regular ATC Vancouver Swap and was also the 10th anniversary. We decided this year's special swap would be houses and they could be from matchbox size to ATC size. These are the 8 I managed to complete in time for the swap.

This is my Freedom House, made with printers cleanup paper and a bit of beads.

Corrugated Cottage is made from corrugated cardboard and the paper pealed from one surface is used for the roof. The walls are white washed with acrylic paint and the roof done with red and some white highlights.
One of my "Cozy House or House Cozy?" houses. I knit 3 houses and used embossed printers cleanup paper for the roof.
These little books with recycled pizza box covers were the little gift inside the house boxes.

The collection of houses I received in trade for my houses.

sheesh those house look like they were a bit of work. They're all really nice. Cute little booklets. You definitely picked good sections from the box for them.

Not sure how the houses qualify for being ATC?? Or was it just a trade of "something done at the ATC meeting.

Thanks for the comments Yogi and Wanda. Yogi, we do a special swap for the anniversary and my walls started as ATC sized and then the angle cut for the roof. Last year was cake slices with a gift inside.

Lovely little houses Joanne and the little books must be tiny. How sweet! Love the look of them all but the knitted one is beautiful. I am glad you found a way to use your knitting. Good to see you posting and hope you and yours are doing OK.
