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!

Those houses are just so cute!! And if I remember right, they are quite tiny as well. We're getting snow, too. It's pretty, but I'm ready for spring and summer.

Wow, Molly looks like she's having fun, and I LOVE your houses as always!! :o) What a great use of scraps. I had a loose goal of maybe making two Swoons for FNSI but that quickly changed to one. lol

Those little houses are so cute! I'm with you....stop when you have had enough, don't push on when it's not enjoyable. Molly looks like she has has a whale of a time. My cat Lestat is an indoor cat and won't walk across the kitchen floor if it is wet. lol The snow looks wonderful......That is said from a completely Aussie point of view! lol

Hi Ellen

I just think your little red door houses are adorable! I looked at all the other villages too and they are just too cute! Love them! sis

You are going to have such a cute village when you are done. I am admiring this project from a distance yet, but I soon may have to start building my own streets of houses.
