Quirky House Blocks

have a new obsession!! House blocks and I seem to be spending a lot of my extra time on them. It started that I found the blog Attic 24 and then I found an applique pattern and then I found another site that has led me to make more houses. Does anyone else do these kind of things? I was just playing around with the b&w houses but the house on the right I plan on adding more to it and making it into a real quilt block. I stood at the ironing board and fused fabric so long that my leg was going numb. What a great feeling when you're having fun. I have all of these scraps of batiks and I think they will make some very interesting houses.
I'm taking a friend to Indianapolis tomorrow to the Art Museum and since I love Art Museums that should be fun. Then we'll do some shopping and some eating. The city is so close and yet I haven't been up there in several months. There is so many temptations there and I try not to go as I spend waaaaay too much money when I go to the fabric stores there.
I'll let you know how our day goes.
