Little House #5


Latest 6" patriotic block. Still behind, but have five done at least.

So interesting to hear of your WW experiences. There are lots of quilt bloggers who have lost large #s on WW, a hearty congratulations to you all and may I join you in the near future!

Last night, I was snoozing on the sofa and woke to see my son reaching for my 12" square revolving Olfa cutting mat to kill a roach on the floor. The philistine. My son, not the roach. I hollered "not the Olfa!" and he began to look over my quilting supply table for something else to squish insects with (slow on the uptake) and I hollered "back -- away from the quilting supplies...go get my shoe". You'd think he would know by now that all quilting items are sacred :-).

Gasp! The idea of anyone in my house using one of my beloved quilting notions to smack a bug just makes me want to faint! LOL Cute house block!

Karen, what an adorable patriotic house. I love the background print you used. It's great!!!

Thanks for the great chuckle! They just don't learn. My entire family was told their life would be worth nothing if I caught them cutting paper with my sewing shears. So one day I find my son cutting cardboard with my pinking shears!!!! His comment - well mom, it's not paper!

The little house is just a cute as it can be.

I really like your little house block, and I had to laugh at what your son did, because mine has done stuff like that so many times!

The house blocks are one of my favorites--like the red, white and blue.

I'm glad I don't deal much with bugs, so my quilting supplies are safe. I like your house.

Your house is just toooo cute!!!

In my house - when the scissors are OK to cut paper with - I write PAPER on both sides with a Sharpie - if you are cutting paper - it better be with PAPER scissors. Yup - got to guard our stuff!

Cheers!

I'm still laughing at the Olfa story -- I bet he got quite a wide-eyed look *s*. Love your house block.

So funny. In Texas we have to deal with big water bugs that come inside every once in a while. Those things make me get on the couch. I almost killed my hubby one time when he killed a water bug with a quilting magazine.The lizards are the ones that freak me out.I shouldn't kill them I know, so I spray them with hair spray to paralyze them for a minute which gives me enough time to throw them back outside.
