Ready to start the Homespun Houses Project.

Hello everybody, 

  a few last days of clearing up my UFO (Un Finished Objects)-basket, which means no more UFOs waiting in there, clears the way to start my long dreamt-of  Dutch Homespun Houses Project.
 These are the two UFOs I finished yesterday:

 The little playing ball is meant to be sent to a very dear, nearly 86 years old, aunt of mine, who's suffering from severe pains in her hands with also loss of strength and suppleness. I hope this ball can provide some relief by daily finger-excercises. It is easy to handle and very lightweight and it is all I can do for her... 
 Wish I lived closer to them; would make it easier for me to visit and assist her and my uncle more often.

 The cute little patchworked, stuffed house is..... a(nother :>)) pincushion!
 This is the example of the Homespun Houses pattern I want mine to look like:

 The first fabric of the twenty five is chosen and later today I'll start cutting and sewing. When ready I'll post a picture to keep you updated.

 Have a  nice and sunny last day of June!
 Cheerio :>)

  2. Ach die bal; wat zal ze er blij mee zijn en wat lief dat je dit aan haar geeft. Tisweereenbjoetie!
    En dat speldenkussen? Lieverd; walgelijk mooi hahahaha
    Je zou ze alleen al voor de "heb" maken; gelijk een vensterbank vol :) En als je geen plek meer hebt voor dat akelige blikje dan fungeer ik graag als kliko haha!

    Lieverd; fijn weekend; geniet morgen van een dagje kneuteren met je (klein)dochter.
    Ik blog nog ff verder; pak zo een lekker glaasje wijn en struin nog even rond...
