Wow, found some more groovy houses to share with you all. It's a blast to see what kinds of houses people are building. Make sure you check out: Kathie and Nancy (who also created a tree) and Carolyn. Quilt Pixie has now added a great free-pieced wonky car to her village.
And on the theme of improvisational piecing, Kate has created some awesome ladybugs.
This is the first block that I've completely quilted from Spaces 4 Rent. It's slow going, esp since I'm doing stupid stab stitch quilting. Don't ask me why, I know it's not the lazy option. I just love how it looks when I quilt 1/8" from the edge of the seam, even when it's thru multiple layers of fabric so I can't do a running stitch. This block (and the entire quilt) is being done with size 8 perle cotton or 3 strands of embroidery floss.
I went out to lunch today with friends. Wow, that's three days in a row - what a social animal I am. Gray and nasty again outside and a bit chilly, but at least it didn't spit rain drops at me like it did yesterday. I ordered some more furniture from the amazing craftsmen who made my mashrabiya screen. These won't be mashrabiya and won't be nearly that elaborate tho.
I have gotten very little done lately, what with the socializing online and in person. And being lazy...
