Wow Followers !!!

Thank you for my followers , does this mean I have to keep blogging I suppose it does ...yippee !! Anyway I can't promise the same frequency as Rachel 'Minimaid' she has a lot better control of the discipline side than I do  I tend to wander off in all directions. Well back to what we do best then blogging , I am in the middle of doing a Greenleaf MacKinley for Rachel and am trying a cotswold stone effect. The effect is created by placing a coating of plaster on the plywood then washing with a water colour wash, then scratching a random stone pattern after it has dried. I think it works quite well but I working on a better way to create more depth but as a facing it seems to work, I'll let you know if any more thoughts become evident.
