Design's are Stand alone Lace
I used 2 layers of badgemaster,
number 12 schmetz universal needle,
40 weight Madeira Rayon thread top and bottom
I did not washout all the badgemaster, but it can be and then starched..
Lay flat to dry hard.
I put on a towel and towel on top and lay heavy books on it for about an hour..
then remove the book and the top towel, and let dry.
I used Allen's glue to glue the church together
I also found pinning to a styrofoam block the best way to dry

I bet you thought this was a saga without end...
The covered bridge needed some engineering support. Firstly I had to cut down the gazeebo roof part a little. Essentially I just shortened the triangles a bit. (fray check works a treat.) Secondly I used bbq wood skewers as a support along the bottom rails on the walls.
We ended up making the wooden planking on the bridge a bit to big so thats why it has a rail on the outside. John said that's where the kids can fish from.... lol
The planks of the floor of the bridge are actually really cheap chop sticks cut down. Then the ends are burnt with a cigarette lighter to give the aged look.
It will all be interesting when it goes together.
Thanks Missi I have had fun with this.
