Well, I have had stacks and stacks of buildings and houses sitting around and yesterday Connie came over and we grabbed some of them and started sewing a neighborhood. There is still more to do and we have another row that is in pieces and a nice border picked out to surround the while thing. I plan to do some embroidery and add buttons for flowers, some rick rack here and there and maybe a small bird or two.
Some of you in my block exchange will recognize YOUR house! I have both friend's houses and my houses and trees from the tree swap we did. The houses were smaller so the tall trees are put away with more houses and we will probably do those too.
While looking through the vault of blocks and things to sew together we found some great Fall blocks I had forgotten about so those will be put together into a little wallhanging to take to Salt Lake and other places I travel.
It is so much fun sewing with a friend.
We put some Pandora tunes on and we both just sew and invent and laugh. It is really fun and this won't just be an ordinary house after house quilt. It will be unique and happy and little surprises if you look! It is those surprises that make sewing things like this fun. We both agree that to be surprised is delightful and so fun and we love this aspect of creating! Keep in mind this is only the beginning of this wallhanging and you will love it once it is done!
