Yahoo…construction is finally FINISHED on my Homespun Houses!! Yup, here’s House Number 11~
It’s looking a little shaky…
And number 12…the stitching is not very good…I’ve got to stop watching those ‘Who Done It Thrillers’ while doing hand work! Yikes!
Here they are side by side…I used the Homespun fabric that Anne included in my Wool Crazy Win…thanks again Anne!! I just HAD to include the fabric somewhere in my quilt…and I’m so glad that I did! I love them…wonky as they may be!
And once they were placed in with the rest of neighbourhood…they are looking mighty sweet!
Then I added the roads…Eureka!! It’s looking more like a neighbourhood!…And they aren’t looking all THAT wonky…just don’t look too closely! :o)
My favourite house…is MY HOUSE..it’s the slate blue one at the top of the hill…love that one best! And YES that was the wonky one!
BUT the building doesn’t stop here…over in Claire’s neck of the woods, she has also started her own construction!! She began her project late but our Foreman, Anne, being the sweetie that she is, said Claire could join in if she worked double shifts…and Claire, being newly retired with nothing but time on her hands:o), rolled up her sleeves and grabbed her hammer!
Let’s have Claire tell you about her own Neighbourhood in her own words!
Here are my little houses. The window and door crew have been busy over at Paulette's and she promises to send them here when they are finished in her neighbourhood. I hope they don't take off for Christmas holidays because all those families will be left in the dark with no way out.
At least Santa will be able to get down the chimneys and fill their stockings. I hope Santa brings Anne a big sleigh full of woolie goodness because she has been so good at driving the team and keeping us on track.
And here are the leftover pieces made into my almost pillow top.
Thanks so much ladies and thanks also for not kicking me out of the club when I didn't start until October. Merry Christmas everyone!
So there you have it…two Homespun Houses for the price of ONE!! Now head on over to Anne’s for more Homespun goodness!! Claire was SEW right when she said that Anne has been the best Fore
manwoman EVER…driving us to completion and keeping us on track!! Now it’s on with the border and appliquéd stars and berries! ME THINKS Anne is going to need an extra long whip to keep us moving!
Have a Super Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P
