back to building houses
I needed to take a long break from my houses, but now I am back "building" again.
I am working on block no 6, the last one, of the Yoko Saito's Mystery BOM quilt, which is no longer a mystery.
I need to finish this block soon, because until I have, my room will carry on looking like a bomb dropped in, with so many fabrics permanently out, as I am always looking for that right piece for a wall, roof, chimney or a door.
I am also "building" the next house in Santa's Village, this time it is the North Pole Post Office. However, the work here has been suspended, while I am waiting for a thread to finish the side wall, which is on a backorder. In the meantime I can carry on shovelling the snow around the Post Office.
Talking about snow, the weather here has been testing us the last couple of weeks. Now and then we have
a lovely warm day, which could fool you into thinking the spring is here, only to be replaced again by cold and frost, or rain or sleet. It looks like next week will mean turning up the heating again.
Oh well, at least I can build my houses inside.
I wish you all a very good week!
