I did it!
I made 2 little houses that are actually 4" square!
The roof lines are good.
The spacing is good.
I actually enjoyed sewing them by hand!
(confession: I did the sashing by machine)
One of my favorite movies is "Galaxy Quest".
Being married for almost 32 years to a Star Trek fan
makes Galaxy Quest an even funnier movie.
There are so many references to Star Trek.
You can't watch it and not have the
"Never give up, Never Surrender"
stuck in your head.
If you've never seen it,
I highly recommend it :)
So what does that have to do with sewing?
Well I was about to give up and surrender
to these tiny houses.
My 2 earlier attempts were WAY beyond wonky
and were no where close to 4" squares.
If you remember, I made the first one by hand.
I stitched the 2nd one on my machine
and even my hubby asked me
"what happened to that 2nd one?"
You know it's bad when a man notices these things!
I tried sashing them in cute polka dots
but even that couldn't save them.
So maybe the 2 little houses on Wonky Lane
will become coasters for my sewing room.....
And today is the first "normal" day of the New Year.
The hubby is back at work and my daily life returns to normal.
I have all the pieces cut and ready to go
for my Countdown to Christmas table quilt.
Hopefully by tomorrow I'll have pictures to show you.
Hope you're all getting started on your projects!
I'll be checking the flickr group for pictures.
