Scrappy blocks that some lucky quilter is going to win!!

Well. I'm sure having fun over here...
Checking out the houses.
I'm really trying to keep them all straight!!
I don't want to get the names, addresses and houses
 mixed up before I begin to
put them in groups and distribute them January 1!!!!!

Since some of you are sending more than one block...
There will be MORE winners!!!
Woo HOO!!
You are the sweetest bunch!
I haven't even mentioned the little gifties that some of you include
in your envelope!!!!
DO you KNOW all the warm fuzzies that gives me???
Well. IT DOES!!!

 We've been making some little houses here too..
Can you see that roof sagging on the left????
The two little ones thought decorating these was GREAT FUN!!!
The two big kids thought we should probably try to
FIX that sagging roof....
A hair dryer????


  1. Wow the December postal pixies must be jet propelled. My house has arrived is super quick time Beth, you were right.

  2. I love the new houses! Oh, these are going to all make for the cutest neighborhoods. This has been a fun project. Gosh, those gingerbread houses remind me of when my children made little "gingy" houses,

I've been overwhelmed by everyones wonderful comments, Once again it proves we really truly are part of such a special neighbourhood!! Those gingerbread houses look good enough to eat!! So what does the hair dryer do?

  17. Hi, I signed up for this, and then lost your email, so I'm really pleased to have found you again. I have found a bag of orphan house blocks, but they are not big enough. I'll add to them, but not in time to get them to you early January. If I them done and send you a photo you would know they are ontheir way? I could send direct to the winner and savevyou postage?
