Under Construction





(no building permit - shhhh)











Seriously you have to go visit and see what she's been up to - go now - I'll wait. :-)






Are you back?






I'm going to assume that you are!






I've been in the construction business for a few days but without a building permit. teehee!!!!






Here are pieces parts awaiting transportation to the building site:







In the construction faze:

Two little houses needing some finishing touches - giftees for a few friends!
You?
Can't tell you - sorry!

This is my Christmas Village waiting to be quilted. I have to make three more just like this one. I'll be in construction mode for a few more days. Whew!


Remember my scraps from my 12 Days of Christmas BOM from The Fat Quarter Shop?

Look at my Christmas Village ready to become a sweet pillow!



To create your 'hood, town, village, etc you'll need a Schnibbles Full House pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.

Thanks for popping in! Come again soon.

In Friendship!

Just adorable! Really cute pattern and fabrics. When you get your contractor's license, I could use your services. :-)

I am so jealous that you've not made one but TWO things with that Count Down to Christmas fabric! I'm counting down the days until I get into my bundle! I could not agree more, Carrie's post with all those adorable house projects is wonderful, a must read and do! I'm hoping I have enough scraps for a pillow, but I know I'll have enough for a pin cushion!

Too bad more of this construction isn't going on (the ones that need builder's permits). Could put a bunch of people back to work! But I really like yours, too. Much quicker and oh, so cute!!

AWWWW Darlene, they are too cute. I had been to Carries blog and I think you had best make sure your permits are in order dear friend. Don't you incurring any unnecessary fines *wink*.
