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!



  1. I do love the quilt block and its detailing, specially the lamp post!

  2. Dear Radka.
    I love your all your houses. One more cute as the other.
    I don't want anymore snow. We need some warm and sunny days ...can't wait to sit out in the garden knitting or stiching.
    Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Your houses are so lovely-it will be a great quilt.
    Hugs Gudrun

  4. Lots of gorgeous houses Radka. Hope the weather settles for you soon.

  5. Hi Radka this is sooo eerie I just received in the post two books that I ordered 3 weeks ago by Yoko Saito one is called houses houses houses ! The other Japanese quilting piece by piece. I didn't know that you are a fan of hers as well .I only saw some of her designs while surfing the Internet a couple of months ago. I love your houses and can't wait to start mine but will need to wait for some fabric to be delivered. Have a great day and I hope your weather improves for you. :-))))))

  6. The houses are looking lovely .It is nice to have a little break sometimes from a project. My sewing room can look like a bomb hit it at times.
    Hope Spring comes soon.
