I love houses decorated for Christmas .... especially when there's snow. But, as you can see in this picture I took of our house a couple of days ago with just a wreath on the front door , I haven't yet mastered the art of "exterior illumination" like .....
Anyway, instead of working on our real Christmas house, I 've been playing around with this "Ready Set Snow" layer cake by "Me and My Sister Designs" from a year or two ago.
Decided to make some fabric Christmas houses . Silly me thought I came up with an original idea, but looking through pinterest and a few blogs, I realize this idea has been around the block a few times . What might put an original spin on it, though is I plan to do this as a Quilt As You Go quilt ..... since my right shoulder is now shot due to work ( physical therapy is a joint killer after 33 years !!! ) and also due to repetitive motion injury of the same shoulder caused by machine quilting 3 big quilts and 1 baby quilt within 2 months. So, I now have to break quilts down into small, manageable chunks to machine quilt ...... it's my new mission in my quilting life !!! Will keep you posted !
OK back to working on houses ..... fabric and real (might go outside and wrap a string of lights around the porch railing ! Clark has inspired me !!! plus we look like the Grinch house of the neighborhood ! )
Be back soon!
