Happy New Year!!!
I have begun making my little houses. First a red and white one:
Since today is the second day of the year, here is my second house.
These little houses finish at 3 inches, so take hardly any fabric to make. Like Jeanneke, I am hand stitching mine. If you would like to join in there is a house button on my sidebar that will take you to the Building Houses From Scraps blog. All the instructions are there. These little houses are very addictive!!
I may not make all 366 houses, but it will be fun!
On the subject of building houses we got some good news last week. After 8 months my DD and DSIL finally got approval for their planning permit for their new home from their local council. There are a couple more hoops for them to jump through, but they should be able to start building in 2 or 3 weeks. :)
I did a little more sewing today and made a simple cover for my new ereader.
I had plans to make something far more complicated, but my brain refused to function in today's heat. It was well over 40 C (about 104 F) here today and it is still about 36 C (97 F) at 8:15 pm. We have had a cool start to summer, so this sudden heat has been difficult.
This year I am looking forward to continuing with the several projects I have already started and perhaps beginning something new. (After I have finished something, of course!! Lol)
I hope 2012 is a happy, prosperous and, most importantly, healthy year for everyone.
