My wheelbarrow....

Here's one of the kits I bought when we went to Welshpool, hubby's been working on it for me, I'm not one of those people that everything has to be kept looking new (stop laughing Gina, I will use all my craft kits up, it's just getting the time, honest), lol..

well here it is made up...



and painted...



and finally looking nice and weathered, in fact like the one my dad lent me years ago, lol... (we bought some real rust when we were at the show in Welshpool to make it look that way)...





the chicken shed is coming along slowly, but I'm fighting for hubby's time at the moment, as he's also working on a policeman and horse figure for someone else...I know, I know, he should get he's priorities right... 'ME'

OK maybe I should mention, he's getting paid to do the other figure (we don't actually get the money, the person donates money to our son school fund raising group, which they've done with all the figures my hubby makes for other people, he have raised £148 so far and some of the figures are living in as far away as France)...

Not got my little shed yet, so will adding that to my list tomorrow, a phone call to find out where it is...
