Building Houses from Scraps

See that new button l have over on the right? A little house?

Well, its a new sew-a-long,  being run by Jeanneke over here.

The plan is to make a house every day for 366 days.

1 little bitty house, just 3" big.

Thats right.  1 house every day next year, 2012,
which just happens to be a leap year.

You can read here where it all started.

There are no rules, just guidelines.
Want to join in?

l am off to go through my scrap basket!!

Thanks for visiting.

Edit- l have had a few inquiries how to join.
 You need to visit Jeanneke at her blog
send her an email to register, and on the 15th December,
we will all receive an email with the pattern.
Then the building can begin!!!
