Monday, I started working on this little block.
You may remember that while I am working on what I want when I want, there was one exception. I really needed to get my last 3 Star of Africa blocks done. As it happened my Lazy Bum group for UFO's decided that February's project theme would be making something for someone else. Perfect! Not only will I get them done, but I will participate in this month's theme too.
While cute on their own, these houses are destined to be set in San Francisco. What? You couldn't guess by the rain? Yep, in San Francisco it even rains inside the houses! No, not really. I meant for it to look like the reflection in the windows. I also thought about trying to paper piece the skyline or a bridge in the background, but the size of the block was limiting. I decided to just embroider the bridge in the background. If all goes well, it will be postcard-like. Stay tuned to see how it turns out.
I've also been doing a LOT of chain piecing. And yes, I hum "Chain, chain, chaaaaainnnnnnn" when I do it. I hope I am not just a link in the chain of fools.
Those pieces eventually turned into these. Quite a lot of work for what you get, but I guess we will all have to wait and see if it is worth it. (Perhaps I am a fool.)
Don't forget to link up any blocks you've been working on to yesterday's Building Blocks Tuesday post.
As always, thanks for reading,
