Sometimes I get a realy nice e-mail from some of you, together with some nice pictures. This one I wish to show you, all the way from Australia!
I am another Australian joining you in ‘Building Houses from Scraps’. Since purchasing the pattern from you on February 8th, I have become addicted to making these little houses from my collection of scraps. It is so good to finally have a reason for keeping all those little bits of fabric that were of little practical use but too treasured to throw out!
I have nearly caught up with my January blocks as I have been making at least 2 blocks a day since I began. I have adapted your pattern slightly so that I can rotary cut it and piece it by machine. My blocks are slightly smaller and finish at 2 7/8” as I am using the imperial measurement system and this size keeps my house block in proportion. Most quilting in Australia is done using the imperial system although the metric system is in general daily use. We buy our fabric by the metre but cut it using inches!
I am sending you some photos of my progress so far. I am also posting photos on flickr. My flickr name is ‘Neverhaveenuffabric’. Actually, it is more a case of ‘Toomuchfabric’ but I am trying hard to rectify that!
365 reasons to buy chocolate! 2 months will fit in one Ferrero Rocher box. As I only have 3 empty boxes, I have to eat another 3 boxes full to have enough to store all my houses! (Any excuse to eat chocolate is welcome!)

Thank you for sharing your project with the world!
