You guessed it

ok, I have had a few good guessers. Project X is officially out of the bag... it is a Haunted house. Oh, no, another large project!!! I thought about it while making my Gingerbread house, but couldn't invision it thoroughly. Then, one day, blam, it was in my brain and had to start coming out! It will be two tiered, with the little fences around the tops of each tier. Also, if I can figure it out, there will be a bell tower with bats! I have also tatted some occupants. So far a skeleton, witch, a couple of bats, and some pumpkins. There will be more. Also, I am thinking of a spooky looking tree with an owl, tombstones, and the like. It should end up being, just the house part, 7½ inches wide, and about 10 to 12" tall. Keep checking in for updates.

Sounds intriguing. I can't wait to see to see the finished Haunted House. Are the occupants all done in 3D tatting? I know you made a 3D witch.

Yes,TattingChic, you were soooo close!!!!
Jane, yep, I'm nuts! I am going to take the GGB house to the Lafayette Lace day though.. if I can go.
Gina, I will have to post it..now where did I put it...hmmmm
Jeff, no, most of the occupants will be normal tatting from my own patterns. Since they have to be so small, I couldn't make them 3d. But the tree will be for sure.
Thanks for the comments everyone!!
