SEW....are you wondering what happened to my Wee Houses?
Well, after much thought...experimenting with different backgrounds and cornerstones...I decided to go with...
...the navy print(with wee white stars) and gold cornerstones! Decision made...or so I thought!
I got my first (1 1/4") sashing sewn on, joining the houses...then decided that the paper on the back of each house HAD to come off ...UGH! I was removing paper for days...seriously...DAYS~
I was like a surgeon with my tools...picks, tweezers, pliers, knitting needle but my best tool ended up being the wooden bamboo skewer! It pierced the paper but left the fabric alone...and of course tweezers to get into the corners! Seriously...two audio books and several movies later to 'get 'er done'!
And three piles of this...not to mention a dog who thought it was snow...which meant PLAYTIME!! We are talking paper throughout the entire house! But it was a small price to pay because these 4" (finished) houses are dang SWEET!
So I have HALF the quilt together...the paper is ALL removed...and much to Rylie's sadness... the whole house has been vacuumed!:o))
Have a FUN Friday and Happy Quilting!~P
