House, again



Well, I had planned to have a sewing day today, and although I didn't get quite as much done as planned (which was due to being called in to do lunchtime cover at school, which is good) I did get some done - to wit, this house block as part of the birthday block swap. I think it's not quite done, though - don't you think it wants a shrub or something in front of the two windows?

Anyway, that's all for today - nothing interesting in the post, even. And it occurs to me to mention that I have not shown my cross-stitch this week - it's because I did very little on it last week, due to doing the binding on Ursula's quilt and then the little mini quilt for Katja. I don't mind that I got little done on it, as the time was spent productively elsewhere... But just in case anyone wondered!

Your block looks very nice but I agree with you that a shrub placed in front of the house would certainly make it even nicer. Love the picket fence on the front. Good job!

a bush or curtains or something, yes. It seems just a touch plain. Maybe put Julie's house number on it?...

I love your little house block and think you are right about a little shrub under the windows and maybe another in the bottom left corner. Or would that be too much?

LOL, I would have said the house block is great as it is but now that you've mentioned the bush...
