My House Found a Home...


A Primitive home that is.  Here is my house block for the Primitive Primer.  When I sewed the first couple of rows together I goofed...so I pulled out a quilters best friend (seam ripper) and redid the rows.  Then I goofed again.  I cut sections wrong... so now the door is on the left side of the house instead of the right side.   But I do love how it turned out.  Now I have to start work on the vase of flowers applique blocks.  This has been soooo much fun.

I also got 3 more bow tie blocks made and 3 more Floribunda blocks.  Hoping to get more done today but not sure.....


You see I have a house guest for the weekend.  And he is a demanding guest.  He wanted to go for a walk as soon as he got here.  For such a tiny little fellow Bear (yes his name is Bear) dragged me down the sidewalk.  I almost had run to keep up with him.  He follows me where ever I go.  I am so afraid he will get lost in my sewing room, he could end up in a quilt.

The weather is wonderful, sun is shinning, slight breeze and just plain beautiful.  And the count down is on.   NINE days till I leave on vacation.  I can't wait.

Wishing you a quilty day.

Hugs, Cathy

lol! Bear would be so warm in a quilt! He has a beautiful coat.
Your house block is lovely! To me, the door belongs on the left. I just realized every house I've ever lived in has had the door on the left except one, and that was centered.
Enjoy your weekend.

Regarding your house block that sounds like something I would do.
Bear is a cutie. If you accidentally sew him up in a quilt I will help you get him out.
