A background for some tiny tiny houses and tiny tiny trees

How the tree looks
A layout of about 20 pieces.
Whew!  Finally, on the Girl's Day Out, I found some acceptable background for sashing on the Tiny Tiny Houses quilt.  It was the first I have bought in a long long time.  And it was expensive!  Prices sure have jumped on fabrics.  I don't want to get too far ahead without being able to start putting them together.  I fear if I get 366 tiny tiny houses and tiny tiny trees and then have to put them all together at one time, it would just become another UFO for future years.

Should have taken my favorite house!
The fabric did not photograph well, the lighting conditions were wrong.  It has no white in it at all, it is an antique muslin color around the tiny tiny on point square.  And those are not the red cornerstones I will use, I just wanted something red in there to see what it was going to look like.  I like it.  What about you?

I am loving the idea of the trees interspersed within the houses; giving shade, if you will.  So I cut out about 44 tree sets to add to the house sets I have prepared.

I was working on the mystery quilt.  I had to make some changes in the pattern, but it is coming along well.  I loved my color choices when I picked them out, but as I see the design taking shape, I am not so sure about it.  Se la vie.

Frank will be home tonight, so I cleaned the house.  He will think I have been so neat and clean when he was gone, he will be surprised to see I actually vacuumed the entire house.  I have done that, like, 4 times in our marriage.  He is the V-Man and owns the vacs and their purchase, upkeep and usage.  Not my thing.

I was, however, amazed that just after one room there was this much dog hair in the canister ---  and no Swissys in the house.  With the Swissys it would fill up a canister for every room.  That is why he went to a bagless vac, we were spending a small fortune on bags!

How are you feeling, Charlene?  I miss you!  I am assuming you made it home OK the other night.  The police didn't call me to bail you out!  LOL.
