Progress Report

I have finished another house....only one left! As I work on these houses I keep imagining them in batik...with pretty blue skies. The homespun plaids are not good with foundation would look so much better appliquéd but too late now! Here is my confession. I bought this kit on Ebay many years ago for $24...everything included. I can "afford," to make mistakes...and of course it will look lovely in the end.

I also finished a cross-stitched ornament. Love Santa's quilt. 

Our French lessons are progressing slowly. We are going to need another two weeks of immersion-type lessons. About the time we are able to speak conversationally in French, I will be heading back to Alaska for a few months.

oh no, then you will need to start lessons all over again! I can just see you doing French lessons for 5 years :) but you will like to get back home to Alaska for the summer I bet!

It's always good to stretch your boundaries and use fabric and colours that you normally wouldn't. I've done that before, and have been usually happy with the results.

I love your houses! I went back and checked them all out. I look forward to seeing this put together. I am always drawn to house quilts.
