Dutchie's Canal Barge Home

Dutchie’s Canal Barge Home

Today’s Designing Worlds’ show will be a visit to the new house that Froukje Hoorenbeeke has created for Dutchie – and to whet your appetite a little, we have a jigsaw of one of the lovely Dutchie canal boats.

Like many of Dutchie’s homes, inspiration is drawn from her native Netherlands, and this is one of the converted canal boats that you might find of the famous Dutch canals, making someone a cosy home.

Her new home is … rather larger – and we’ll be posting more about the show (and where you can see the home for yourselves) later today.

In the mean-time – enjoy the jigsaw!

SL11B Community Celebration

The SL11B Community Celebration is set to open at 12 noon SLT today – and it looks fantastic.

To prove it, we have a jigsaw based on just one little corner of the regions.

And there are eleven regions in total, packed with the most amazing things, including an amazing Welcome Area, three large stages, an auditorium that is hosting a wealth of great things, gifts galore, a Big Hunt, and wonderful, wonderful builds …

Do the jigsaw – and then get ready to come and explore for yourselves!
