February FNSI Results - Little Houses
My goal was to make 10 houses last night but I ran out of steam and only got 4 made. I think they turned out really cute. I am getting so much better at sewing the inset seams for the sky sections. I really thought they would give me trouble throughout the whole project but it hasn't taken me too long to get the hang of it. I am sewing these little houses on my vintage Singer 301 and I think I have fallen in love with this machine. The only problem that I am finding is that I automatically move my hands to use the thread-cutter button that I have on my Janome...too funny! I still need to make 6 more little houses to meet my "building quota" for the month but I don't think it will take me too long to get them done. I am really enjoying making these houses! You can visit here if you want to see other houses that are being made. There are many of these little neighbourhoods popping up all over the world!
Don't forget to take a little time to visit Heidi's blog to see what other participants in the Friday Night Sew-In worked on. I have a feeling there was a whole lotta sewing going on!
I thought I would add this picture of Molly today. She is standing on the back patio but she had been playing in the snow. That's right - we are getting snow!
