Thanks to Em.

And thanks to Charity....
(who sent these little houses)

Your prize????

You will be receiving one of these little houses.
Your challenge....
if you deem to accept it is this:

Make something.
Make something little.
Make something big.

I will probably add a little sidebar on my blog.
When you make something with your house....
Email me.
Let me know.

I will add you to the sidebar.
And we'll all have fun

If I have enough of the little houses I will also
mail one to the winners.
If I don't I hope the winners will let me know
when their quilt top is done so I can add THAT to the sidebar.
Last, but not least,
here are some of the blocks
that arrived in the last couple of days...
Just because I thought You'd like to see them.
Thanks so much for joining me in this

  29. Hi Beth,

    I'm only just getting round to blog reading after having been away for a while. I'm so happy to win some house blocks, they will be put to good use making a quilt for some of the flood victims here in Australia.

    I will be sure to post about it a couple of times while I make the quilt. It was such great fun making those blocks.
