Shabby Houses

It was chilly in Texas today after the huge storm we had. I watched a movie and then looked for something to do.

 I have been printing out a shabby house block of the month. I'm trying to get away from making large bed size quilts now. I still have one to layer and quilt and that's enough for right now. I recently bought a cotton flannel sheet blanket for the warmer summer weather. I thought I'd make a foot blanket to dress the bed up and some pillow cases and shams.

In my scraps bin I had one piece of Kona white. This will be the center of the foot blanket. It's needle turn applique and embroidery. I don't have my tiny iron or applique glue to work with so I did a lot of pinning today. I did find my case of silk thread. So here is my start. I'll be adding some kind of blocks. Maybe pin wheels or stars or log cabin.

Your houses are gonna be sweet. I gave up on mine after February as I did not want to work on a "calendar" style quilt. But, the houses are maybe one day, I'll just rework them into something I will enjoy working on.
