Canal Houses - Done!



Today I worked on the last two houses, as well as finishing up the top-stitching on the ones which hadn't been done before. So, that's it. Here's a photo of as much of them as I can show at once - the two end ones have been cut off a little because I simply can't get far enough away from it to show the whole thing (even by standing on the coffee table and holding the camera over my head). God knows where I'm going to hang it when I get all my bits and eventually attach it all together. But I'm sure I'll figure out something...

In the end, I will get two of my own houses back - not sure which two, though I think we are all getting House A back. Originally it was only going to be one of our own back, but someone had to withdraw, so now it will be too. The hostess kindly said I could specify which one if there was one I really wanted, but looking at them all again, I can't make up my mind - I like them all!



These two are today's complete additions - the others have all been shown to some degree before. It's been a fun project, but I have to say, I am very glad to have finally finished.

Wonderful -I've wanted to do something like this since visiting Holland, but could never quite capture the atmosphere created by the proximity of the houses to thhe canals.

That is going to be one beautiful quilt/wall hanging(?). i am not brave enough to do that now - still loving my charm packs.

I really like them and would love to see the finished product.

They are all wonderful! I'm not surprised you can't chose which ones to keep. I'm sure they were a lot of work - all that detail on windows and doors. I'll see the finished product when I come over in February, I imagine.
