celebrating LOVE 15 minutes at a time...

"The House that Love Built"


I so appreciate this blog space where the wonky and scrappy are CELEBRATED and encouraged!  It is an honor to be a part of this space!

  After several increments of 15 minute spells, the mini piece is nearly done.

I hope the color is joy to your soul on this Monday!

Thank you, Victoria!  and Thank you, Lazy Gal, Unruly Quilter for your LOVE blocks inspiration!

It is so adorable! I didn't even notice the letters in the house the first couple times I looked at it. I love the smoke and the trees. Beautiful!

Em- I tell my husband that he brings the 'Peace and Harmony' and I am the "Love". When I saw this it just brought a smile to my face cos it kind of brought all of those things together in one!!!!! I would love to maybe one day use it as an inspiration for a wallhanging to give to him........if that was ok with you. I'm sure mine would probs turn out a mere shadow of the gorgeous one you have done:) If I got my act together I should do something for his 50th in November.......mmmmmm........

I love the design and the fussy cuts, what a fun piece.
I am in an artsy, needing some fun mood, so time to sit down with my scraps and play.
