New homespun construction site!

So a new construction site has been started across the pond! I showed a pic on my last post of the homespun houses I have started putting together and although very late in joining the SAL, Anne has kindly invited me to come on board.

The reason for the delay? I had to bide my time until I came across the book here in the UK.

I am further behind than most and for that reason I will show 3 this month.

I think I have 1 more house to put together but I have a lot of windows still to do.
Initially I thought this would be a good project to practice my needleturn applique-just windows and doors, but between my lack of skill and the fact that homespun isn't straight to start with, I have wripped out more than I have stitched I think, but we shall persevere!

Go check out Anne's blog to see what others are doing and have a great weekend.


  1. You have really caught up and the houses look great. I was ahead and now behind with "construction" so not sharing my blocks in December. Can't wait to see more of yours next month.

  2. Hi Shazy, good to hear from you - yes, it's great to manage a bit of stitching, it's so relaxing. I love your homespun house blocks, they're great ...... look forward to seeing the finished product!
