Houses, week II

Since we were out of town last week, I have fewer houses to show this week. What I do have to brag about is finding a sashing and cornerstone fabric that I love. I wanted to go ahead and get to this part so I could incorporate it into the block, thus making a 4 1/2 inch block instead of a 3 1/2 inch block and saving myself a step down the line. 
I like that the sashing is black, it may well be the ONLY color that won't show up in the houses, so it sets them apart. Also, I toyed with the idea of red cornerstones, but I really like a more neutral look. I think the black and tan helps organize everything... just a bit. 
House 8: Back from California and chomping at the bit to make more little houses. I have learned, though, that little houses and being sleepy do not mix. This one has a dark sky because I started it at 10:30 pm. (It's blue but you can't really tell.)

House 9: I really like this little guy. I like his colors, and that blue sky is very serene. Today went by too quickly. Too many things to do and not enough time/energy. Such is life.

House 10: Wow! House #10. That seems like a milestone, doesn't it? We are still adjusting to normal east coast time and were both awake from 4 am onward. Julian went for coffee with a friend at 7am, but that ended up being a bust because of schedules and we were both back in bed at 7:30am. I feel guilty for doing quilting when I feel behind on my "real life" chores. How come fall brings so many new chores?
