One more house to show

I received the house from Sue from Australia.  Here it is showing off with Melina and Marlene's houses.

Elisa, your's hasn't arrived yet.  I look forward to it being in my pile of mail when I get home from Australia.  We leave on Sunday and will be there for a month.  My b-i-l told me that I should wear the same shirt I had on when I was speaking to him on Skype today.  I told him I don't think so.  It is 19 degrees there and -30 here....

Teeny weeny blocks for Elaine

These are the blocks i've made for Elaine.

They look ok, i was happy with the colours and whipped them up quickly. too quickly I'm afraid! I have cut the half square triangles way too small and ruined any chance i had of making these blocks for Elaine's quilt.
Today I posted them to Texas with apologies. Maybe Elaine would like to make a cushion or a label from them. Maybe she would like to send me a bit more of the Moda Bella Stone........which I am more than happy to pay for and then I can right my wrong.
Why doesn't anyone in this town sell this fabric, I have called them all?
So sorry Elaine.

Janet and Elaine's blocks

I finally had time to work on these blocks. I will mail them out tomorrow. I hope ya'll enjoy them.

Elaine - I just used some of my favorite fabrics.

Janet - the flowers on the sides of the house are supposed to be my flower gardens.

I have enjoyed doing this online bee and would love to do so again.

Thank you all,

More Houses on the Block and Blocks for Elaine

Elaine,  I put your blocks in the mail earlier this week.  And today when I looked at the picture I took of them, I see it is blurry!  Oh well, hopefully you'll have the real thing to look at soon.  Here is the blurry version...

And two more houses have gone up on the block, one from Melina and one from Marlene.

Thanks ladies!  They're so cute!

Sue, your block hasn't arrived yet, but I'm not worried yet.  Mail can be super slow here sometimes.  Other times it is average.  I would give it at least another week before I start to think it's gone missing.
