Hello friends. Thank you so much for stopping by to have a look at the construction sight. You know that house building is a messy business. One is left with several scraps that you can't use because there is not enough for a house unit!
What to do with your scraps you may ask. Remember, your scraps cost the same as your precious yardage, so put them to good use.
I am making 1/2 inch hexagons with my leftovers. I cleared all the scraps from around my sewing machine this weekend and made this lovely little pile. They are going into a box with others to make a completely scrappy hexagon quilt. No planning involved! Just lots of color and lots of sewing.
Are they not too cute for words?
Here is my tin which I put my finished houses into. It is getting full. I have 49 houses. Yes, I can't believe it but I am only behind by one house. I made SEVEN this weekend. The dear husband and kids were building a model aircraft at the kitchen table. My daughter was sewing there too. My machine was set up and I just stitched away merrily. We had quiet a crafty weekend. It was so good just being together.
