Friday finishes on Saturday. Always a day behind.....

Here come the holidays and I'm already running.
BUT,
I have my November blocks complete for the 
Modern Block Party.

(What?  before the end of the month?)

Ms. November requested blocks to make the quilt
"Second Wind" 



These were very simple blocks, but sometimes those are the things that get wonky on me.  
LOL

The bright and fun fabrics she chose are Kate Spain's Day Dream.

Ms. November mentioned something about creating a group in the future to make
little pink houses
so....

Why wait for the future?
I created a little pink house as a surprise.

One for her and of course one for me.
9 1/2" x 12 1/2"



The last one is mine because the bottom roof is a touch wonky.  
It was the first pattern I drew and the blasted triangle just isn't right.
I like the squared up roof a little better.

Picket fences and little pink houses
 of course, as usual, I want a quilt of them...


Next week
begins.

Projects that can be made within a couple hours or in an evening.
Perfect for the season.
Gifts you can make in a jiffy.

I have been busy getting ready...

My day is 
Wednesday, November 19th.

Marlene is cheering this one on 
and she has already coordinated a gift exchange among the bloggers in the hop.

You will see what we have created for each other, too!

As soon as I saw your pink houses I had that song stuck in my head by John Cougar Mellencamp or whatever he goes by now.

Funny, the little pink houses block idea brought Kenny Chesney's American Kids song to my mind. Are these blocks going to be interspersed with living room couch blocks? ;o)
