The Neighborhood Is Growing


As I was making these house blocks today I wondered, " Why are these so much fun to do?"
Any thoughts?
(For me I think it reminds me of those summers long, long ago
when I used to amuse myself by designing clothes for paper dolls!)

That's a good question. But every time I think of sewing house blocks it does seem fun. Glad you all are enjoying it. I seriously love these blocks.

Those are wonderful, Margaret! I particualrly love the trees! I think you're right, they makes us feel like a child again, drawing cute little pictures and cutting out!

These are so great. THe last one looks like modern houses built in Tokyo. You can't build out only up.
