Hello from a remote place in Texas

Hello Everyone,
Yes, I'm still around although right now I'm sheltering in place in our little ranch in a remote place in Texas. Our ranch is located 12 miles outside of a little town of 1000 people somewhere in the Hill Country so we're pretty isolated.  While in isolation, I've spent part of my time working on a Village. Moda Fabrics did a wonderful thing for us while we're staying home. They made the Village pattern from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company available for free!  How great is that?  You can download it on their website at:
Village
or http://www.unitednotions.com/fp_RQC-701-Villages.pdf
The most tedious part was cutting out the pieces but the sewing went really fast.  Here's what I did:
There are 132 little houses. While I was on a roll making little houses, I made 2 more and turned them into potholders for a swap I'm in.  
Now that I've to my feet wet blogging again, I guess I'll continue because I hear there is a Pincushion Parade coming up soon. Remember that from other years?  So I guess the next project I'll be showing you will contain pincushions.  Check with me again soon for more info on the Pincushion Parade. See you soon :)

The houses are the cutest! I can't wait to start on mine now. You sure are quick though. Not sure mine will come together as fast. Looking forward to your next post :)

Your village looks great! And I love the pot holders too. Good to see you back - stay safe in isolation. xx

Amazing progress on the houses quilt project. Seems to be a great way to pass the time during quarantine. Several friends made me a "Quarantine 2020" quilt. They created a variety of blocks using in all shades of yellow, sunflowers and prints with black. The backing is filled with words and expressions about friendship. Thank you for the blog post. Enjoy each and every day.

I love your ittle houses! I printed out the pattern a couple of weeks ago, but haven't made any yet. I have twenty hundred other projects in the works. As much sewing as I've done the last couple of months, the list doesn't seem to be getting any shorter!!

I love the little potholders! It's been such a fun swap this time.

Your village turned out beautifully. You reeled me right in with it and they are such fun blocks to make - so fast and easy. The hardest part is selecting the fabrics. I hope mine turn out half as cute as yours.
