Houses in Frolic!

I’m so glad to have you help me celebrate 500 posts!   It wouldn’t be possible with out all of you  :)

I took a little time on Saturday to make some house blocks for V.  Pulled out a little extra yardage, from a different project, cut, and whaalaa –

Houses in Frolic

What do you think?  I love them – yes, there’s five total!  I work in production mode best, and it’s for a great cause!  :)  These will be in the mail early this week to meet the April 31 deadline.

While working my blocks, I was able to put a couple new tools to work!  I told you about Kelly’s month of giveaways, and went and entered myself in a bunch of them too.  Lucky me – I won a set of tools.  Yay me!  

Super sharp little scissors and seam ripper – I have to rethink my ways a little to put it to good use, but it’s nice and sharp.  And the scissors are a great addition for all the little threads hanging.  Thank you Kelly!

I hope you have a great day!

    Goodness…I am still using the same old seamripper I got over 25 years ago and had no idea there was such a new fangled thing like that…how do you use it?:) Guess I need to investigate at my local shop!;)

    Your houses are sweet…yes, that Frolic is a lovely fabric and feels really nice too!:)

    Ooo, new tools are fun to play with but that seam ripper looks especially dangerous.

    The house blocks look great! Will surely brighten someone's day.
