SSCS mailed off!

Today I mailed off my SSCS parcels to their destinations.  I have two swap partners this year as well- and it will be so much fun to keep stalking their blogs and find out when they receive their gifts..... This is the only swap I have been in this year, but as you can see on my right sidebar, it is my favorite swap in the world!!!!

Since there has been secret sewing going on, and lots of other stuff I won't even get into here, there hasn't been much sewing that I can share.... sorry!  But last night we had block night at the shop, and we made "Happy scrappy houses" quilt blocks from Bonnie Hunter.  Between the six of us we made 17 house blocks in just a couple of hours- fun and very addictive!
Here we are at work (my mom in the foreground), and notice the box of chocolates in the middle of the table.... We have FUN when we get together :-)
Here are all the houses- don't they look great?

A close up of one of my houses- I can see myself easily make LOTS of these!!! They look so cute in all kinds of fabrics!  Have you made any of these house blocks yet??

To mrs. L in Alvdal ;-) and all my friends and readers in the US, - HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!


  1. Hei. Mine SSCS pakker er i posten også. Hadde to i år jeg også,så nå er det are å vente på post. De husa dere sydde ble kjempe flotte. Hus er gøy å sy.:-)

  2. Kjempefine hus. Har ikke sydd hus, men kanskje jeg skulle gjøre det. hmmmmmmmmmm kom nettopp på at jeg tror jeg har en gammel ufo med crazy hus på liggende et eller annet sted, men hvor???

  3. I love the little houses, always have wanted to do some, I do think after I finish these two I am working on that will be my chore!I have enjoyed having claude home twice but it was for a sad time, do you remember Lace and Dacks Rodriquez (Lance graduated with you and Claude) their father passed from cancer. He was all of their baseball coach and a mentor to so many on Merritt Island. the viewing and service was so full of yor wonderful classmates.Miss you sweet friend. All the wonderful Christmas blessings to you and your precious family. Hugs, Marie
