In the House


I purchased this pattern about 3 years ago from Gyleen Fitzgerald .
I started participating in Building Houses from Scraps and for the life of me I could not make that little 3.5 inch house look good even with paper piecing.
So, I went to my closet and pulled out this UFO and I think 2 more rows of houses will give me a nice wall hanging.
These houses are made from my scraps except for the sky of which I had purchased many different gradation's of sky blue when I first purchased the pattern.
Now, I can finish the house constructions and still participate in the building of houses.

Your houses look great and I love the trees.

I really like that. I like seeing house blocks....as for making them? Not so much. I can't ever get the roof and/or chimney lined up.

I like the size of,your houses much better , those tiny houses were challenging or me too . I really love this with the variety of color and the added trees give it lots of interest.

I really like your houses. Bright and happy (and big enough to be realistic).
