This weekend, on the way back from Nauvoo, my family stopped by the American Gothic House. Unfortunately, we got there after the Visitors' Center closed but we got a chance to stretch our legs and take some fun pictures. That evening I got my packet of fabric from the Bee Improvisational Bee. Elaine requested improv/wonky houses and I decided to give her an American Gothic House.
Honestly, I am not thrilled with how it turned out. I think I needed to use some flashes of bright colors, more wonk and a different/better roof line.
Even so, it was fun to see the actual American Gothic House and recreate it.
