therapy

I received some house blocks from Benta last week.
She knew she was late for the neighborhood block giveaway...
...but sent them anyway.
Sweet.
She didn't know it...but I needed these blocks today!!
I need some sewing therapy!!
And they are the perfect prescription!!

Thank you BENTA!!!!

You can see I just laid them down on some fabric
and now I plan on zigzagging my troubles away!
I also had all those lovely orphan strips
that had already been sewn together during another
sewing therapy session. ;)
Aren't they a great match?

Part of this therapy involves figuring out
WHAT to put in the middle and around the houses!
I'm dreaming about a big sun!
We'll see.
Putting my mind on this little village
gives me such happy thoughts.
I'm thankful I can sew today!!!


Benta also sent these four machine embroidered beauties.
I'm saving them for another day....
 when....
sewing therapy is needed!! ;)

  4. Love your village Beth. Maybe the man in the moon would be fun. Oh make it the woman in the moon instead.

  6. Oh Beth, I was sorry that I left it so late to post them, but now I am delighted that it worked so well for you. They look great put together like that - MUCH better than in a box in my cupboard while I wondered why I'd bothered!!!

  8. Love your little village Beth. I haven't made anything with my small house yet. Trying to get something finished for a birthday in Feb. I do look at the house often. Even took it fabric shopping once in my pocket. One day soon I will surprise you, and myself and actually make something. Love what everyone else has made.blessings, Bx
