I will, December 14th

embellish two more Happy Holiday Houses, adding a little more fluffy yarn, buttons and whatnots.

If you’re here for Giveaway Day just click on the little house in the sidebar and it will take you directly to the giveaway post.

I fell back in love with the old houses while I was making a Happy House block for Beth’s neighborhood. I have looked at the other houses she has received for the block lottery and this block just might stand out a wee bit, but well, she did say any technique. The stamped tree was a new experiment, and although the paint makes the fabric rather stiff, I’m very happy with the result.

I wanted so badly to add a little more bling here and there, but had to stop myself as the block might get pieced into a quilt and too many embellishments can make this process annoying. Like a cute little button snowman. So, I made more Happy Holiday Houses on which I can embellish my little heart out.

#1 was finished on Friday just in time for the recipient stopping by; I would have loved to add more stuff, but I ran out of time.I used a piece of ribbon for hanging thinking that my Keith Haring paper clips could do with a rest.
Maybe it was for the best, more is not always better, is it.
