I enjoy collecting antique quilts and making reproductions of them both big and small. I've made a few baskets and I'd like to make more. I dabble in knitting and would love to learn rug hooking, but it's hard to find time to do it all. I work in higher education and I love my job. However, I do spend a lot of time dreaming about quilts.
Note that scraps are plural and house is singular. I decided hand piecing these little cuties was the best method for me but it definitely isn't the fastest. I didn't want to go to bed last night without at least starting my first block no matter how tired I was. The problem with that was I kept dozing off as I worked on it. After the third time waking up with the threaded needle in my right hand the fabric in my left I realized it was probably safer to not stitch and snore and set it aside until this morning.
As soon as I saw Jeanneke's generous and brilliant project I knew I had to join. House blocks are, after all, one of my all time favorites. I definitely cannot make a house a day as Jeaneke designed the project but will endeavor to produce one a week - or maybe one a month. I will also try to work on my other house projects which are described here and here. Yikes, that a lot of unfinished dwellings! There are a couple of blue and white houses I'd like to start building, too. Does this mean 2012 is the Year of the House for me?
