plans change.

I sent out a BUNCH of little tiny houses today...;)
then....
I got to work.
What was I going to make with MY little house???

First thought:
Good thought:
PINCUSHION!!!
Yes!!
That's what I'll make with my little house.
I'll be able to use it frequently and remember
my great neighbors.

We all know plans change.
As I was digging around...
Looking for the perfect fabric I found...
The perfect orphan blocks
AND
the perfect NUMBER of orphan blocks!!
I couldn't have planned it better!
They were someone else's cast offs
that I enjoyed sewing together a few months ago.
Then they sat.....wondering where they'd end up!
They didn't have to wait too...too....long.
Who knew they were waiting for a little house to join them????

The seams don't all match up,
and the points aren't ALL there....
But, you won't tell...and neither will I!!!
That's what good neighbors do!

  13. Perrfffecct neighbours. Just made for each other. You have made something special. We say in my church banner group, No one is perfect but God, so those little imperfections are very acceptable.
