Now sometimes I can get carried away with things. Melody had a link to a table runner that had some little house blocks which remind me of those little huts on the beaches in some countries. I can't remember how many house blocks you needed for the runner but I went overboard.
This block was a good way to use up some of the fabric stash. For the backing I used a lovely pale blue gingham that I had purchased for the lovely sum of one dollar at Good Sammy's. There was nearly two metres of fabric in the length. So thank you to whoever donated that. Sometimes I can't believe how I find fabric for "later on" that is brand new and it fits in perfectly for the project I am working on. The binding fabric was some that a neighbour from our previous home gave to me. She used to own a patchwork shop so was the perfect neighbour to have.

Would you believe that my next project will be a cover for a licorice. More will be revealed when I work out the pattern and get the supplies.
