I spotted an old Singer Sewing Machine lid in a charity shop skip an thought I could make use of it. It stood in the garage for a month before I cut it down a bit, laid canvas on the exterior and made a top, bottom and an octagonal spire for the top.
This morning I roughed in three tiers of figures in a loose fashion as a beginning - more work will follow.
I am suitably amused for the moment.
