The lovely Angie, who blogs at GnomeAngel, is coordinating a house-block swap. I've signed up for the international swap, so these six little houses will be heading off to three lovely ladies both here and overseas.
I followed the basic pattern that Angie shared on her blog, with a few little changes so I could ramp-up the fussy-cutting opportunities, the TINY fussy-cutting opportunities - the windows are a half-inch square, finished! Each house is 6 1/2" unfinished. Here they all are one by one.
I think this next one is my favourite - not one, but TWO Laurie Wisbrun giraffes!
They're all pretty busy, I know, but I do find it very hard to tone things down sometimes. Too much colour, all the patterns, throw them all in together, I say! I even had to specifically buy plain, white, solid fabric for the borders - I just never use a solid white, ever!
The swap houses are due to be posted by next Friday, so check out all the happy little houses that are now popping up on instagram and Flickr - search for #patchworkhouseblockswap and #thefussycuttersclub. Pop across too, to Angie's blog, to join in with her second Fussy Cutters' Club linky party, and take a look at all the fun fussy-cut creations that some very clever peeps have been making!
Hope you have all had a great week - the school holidays have been perfection here in Brisbane. Happy weekend to you all. xoxo cat
