Started this sampler in 2013. Each month I made 4 extra for my sampler. Except for the flowers all follow the guidelines.

Little Windows in Cat Houses

  I’ve made some Little Windows blocks with cats in the windows.

I looked at my stack of mail and think, wow these blocks really came fast! Then  I look at the date and realize how far we are into the month of December. Here my list of block arrivals… Many thanks go to Charlene, Julianne, Laurina, Pat, Peggy, Sharon and Sophie. Then there was the mystery envelope. It was a bonus surprise from Gwen! 2 blocks!

Show and tell

Here are a couple more Charity tops one has the Basket Block…I made some extra ones to go with the Duds/Orphans one I received, the other top uses a chevron I made to go with other left overs…keep in mind, sewing is new to me so there are probably zillions of mistakes. Just thought you might like to see what bits and pieces…even unrelated ones can do even for beginners! ( I am allergic to house work so if you see any dust bunnies in the pictures…ignore...
