She wanted a more traditional school house style block. I picked a house from Kumiko Fujita's Patchwork Lessons. I love this house because it has lots of windows to fill and you all know how much I love fussy cutting!! Here is the Kumiko Fujita version.
I added the attic window, and the pathway to the house.
As far as "bits and pieces" go, I started this log cabin to be one side of a purse. It is mid size - about 15" x 12" which will be the perfect size to fit all my goodies. I'm on the fence as far as the color scheme but it is growing on me.
I picked the first flowers from my garden today!!
There is nothing like the scent of fresh cut flowers.
I've been doing a bit too much vintage shopping lately.
The pitcher came from a wonderful little antique shop near Hood Canal in Wa State.
The sweet painting was $10 at a vintage store in Olympia, WA.
I thought the tea towel on the left was just so sweet.
The book on the right "From Me to You ~ A Gift of Friendly Thoughts" is just wonderful. It was written in 1911 and is filled with lovely little gems about friendship.
I'll leave you with this:
"Happy is the house that shelters a friend. "
