Homespun Houses

I've jumped in and joined a quilt along making Homespun Houses.   I'm behind when I start so I will have to make a couple houses the next couple months.   They are pretty simple and fun to sew together,  just wish I sewed my windows on straight.   Argh..... drives me crazy!   Applique will never be easy for me.      There are 10 in the quilt along, their links are listed below:

This has been a sad week for us.  My mother in law passed away Monday and 
Joe is working out of town until Thursday.  It makes it harder because he  
is out of cell phone range and no internet.  We do get used to being
connected don't we.  We spent last Saturday night with her and we are so
thankful we did.   
 
I am going to hop over and check out everyone's blocks, have a great week.
 
Hugs,
 
Carrie

Love the house with the crooked windows.....:)

Anne said...

So glad you decided to join us. The blocks are quick and easy to pick up and do just a window or two when you have a minute. So sorry about Joe's mom.....

Sorry about your Mother-in-Law. Lost mine two years ago.
I'm catching up on houses also, joined late. My excuse for not adding windows and doors yet(scared of applique).

Your house is great. I'm having such a good time with ya'all.

I think that you have a great start to the neighborhood. I am not sure that when these kinds of houses were actually built that they had straight windows either!!
