Houses, hmmmmm

I was energized!  HOUSES!  I love houses!  I was going to wait until AFTER Christmas and do some, when life is  CALMER.  But I couldn't!  Just COULDN'T.

We met friends for dinner and I kept SQUIRMING and wanting to be home in front of my SEWING machine with HOUSES.  Finally!  Home.

I rush in and start making HOUSES!  Glorious HOUSES!

First one is OK.  But I think it is too busy and decide to do the second one with less BUSY.  But I do like the FENCE block I found in the SCRAP pile! 

And better yet, I find CLOUDS!  The SKY for the second house is going to be CLOUDS!

Oh oh.  This second one, while it does have CLOUDS, it is not quite what I set out to do.   It was SUPPOSED to be a house AGAINST the mountain.  But it looks like a house IN a mountain. Oh my.  It is a good thing I didn't choose ARCHITECTURE in college!

I CAN say this:  the THIRD one will be the CHARM!


glen:  I think I will go clean something.............maybe not.

Cute! I thought the second one was a very modern home.

I think that is what is so fun and interesting about all of them. sometimes you have to search for it, and it's a happy surprise... So much energy in them!

Great houses. I love how they are all so fun and so different.

Your houses are quilt lovely. I love the fence.
Your second one look like the grand entrance to a huge pyramid.
