I've Cut It!!!!!!! (or a Housewarming Party)

I cut into it. I did. I really did. I've been saving it up for ages and ages, taking it out, looking at it, ironing out the creases and refolding it. It's been in my stash ever since The Great Fabric Find. If you look at the link, its the first photo top left.

This is what it looks like now.

I cut it up for Bonnie's Housewarming Party, which is being organised by Tonya. This is my contribution.

Bonnie's House

If you haven't done any wonky work before, now's your chance to say a big thank you to Bonnie.

Alex has just walked in and I've still got a web search to do for train tickets. I'm off on a jaunt next month and, no, I'm not telling you where I'm going *s*.

That's yer lot until next week. Have a good weekend and I hope the weather picks up for all of you across The Pond.

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your comments.

I know it's hard, but it is better to go ahead and cut into fabric that you love so that you do actually use it. Your wonky house turned out fabulous - very lively. good luck getting those train tickets!!!

Well sometimes you've just got to cut it! Well done. Bet it didn't hurt too much.

And where are you going? You mysterious thing you! :)

Nice wonky house. It always means more when you cut into a fabric you really love, too.

I love a mystery. A train trip, eh? Sounds like so much fun.

Very cute house for Bonnie. I was disappointed in the way mine turned out. Could be that's why I forgot to take a picture of it before I sent it off! (smacking self on the forhead)

I'm planning but haven't started yet. Your house looks great!
