    Marymo your blocks will be great we are always are our worst critic. One time I brought a bunch of beads I made to get rid of I called them my bad beads because I thought they were terrible and within 2 minutes they were grabbed up people loved them so we may not think something we do is good but others think they are. And I would love to have you in my neighborhood. I divide them fairly so don't think you won't get one you really want I try to keep a tally of what people say they want and if it's possible I give them what they want.
    Im glad your not dropping out.

    Who wants a funky castle?

    My friend gave me a yard of Woodrow of London fabric with tiny colorful squares, some gold. As soon as I saw it I knew I had to make something for the funky house swap. I am in the middle of making these 6 1/2 inch funky castle blocks. What do you think? Anyone want one? I am very happy with how they are turning out.

    Beach Walk Row Houses

    Anybody interested in "Beach walk Row Houses"? I still have to add the detail work. But, I had a great time digging through scraps to make this set.

    Stay MaryMo and have some fun with us.

    I'm feeling the same as you because my houses are very simple. But I know all these ladies are so warm and caring that they won't mind if I'm not quite as creative as they are. And...I hope it will inspire me to get better for the next one.

    Of course I want one. My granddaughter (Princess Kaitlyn as she calls herself) would love to see a castle in my "neighborhood."

    Well as you can see by all my comments it has been a few days since I checked in the group. I still haven't taken pictures yet but I'm about ready to mail them in. I'm heading down to my SIL's house for a sewing get-together. She has dial up though so I might not be able to get in as much for a couple of weeks but I'll do my best.

    I do agree, these houses are looking so wonderful. Now really, are there any "simple" houses? I have enjoyed watching the creativity here and it inspires me to do better. I, for one, do not mind the "simple" because it allows me to do as I want when putting the blocks together. I live in a simple neighborhood, but each neighbor adds their own flair to their yard which gives it a little pop. So keep them coming. And by the way, I really do think the castle is neat, it is intuitive.
