I am not going to have a computer next week so I have been trying to cram everything computer-related into this week.
Naturally, I haven’t managed to do half of what I wanted to do, but before I disappear off-line I thought it would be nice to post a Make and Do, so here (in a bit of a rush) it is – with a little bit of explanation first.
I seldom make a limited edition of anything.
The Pretty Village was an exception to this rule because, although I like it very much, I could not bear the thought of making thousands and thousands of tiny houses – endlessly.
The last of the limited edition sets will be in the post this coming Monday, and so I wanted to have a little bit of fun, both to celebrate and say farewell.
The result was a different sort of “limited edition” – there are only three houses in this set and what you do with them is limited to your imagination.
I have re-sized the houses to fractionally over 1/2″ (1.25 cm) tall and, although they are not “easy”, they should not be impossible to put together.
I did photograph the “how to make” process but, unfortunately, it has been snowing on and off for a couple of days, and there was either too much reflected light (or not enough light ! ) to get good photographs – and not all the wonders of computer science could improve the photos much – so the following slide show is very uneven in quality.
The pdf 3_Pretty_Village_Houses_OHM_20130119 is, I hope, vastly better !
To escape from the slide show press the Esc key – it is usually in the top left hand corner of your keyboard
I hope you enjoy making these.

May 2013 Update –
I have had several requests for the full village.
I am sorry, the full village is one of the very few things that I made as a limited edition and it is not available for download.
