Happy houses

I said I wouldn't be able to resist those Happy Houses, so here are the four I made last night.

Aren't they great? In case you can't see, the people in the doorways are a girl playing a cello, Snoopy with a football, an alien playing some sort of alien instrument and a girl with long hair and pink sandals. It was fun finding the people for the doorways, but not as easy as you might think. Even with my extensive colection of novelty fabrics, I couldn't find too many images which were large enough or complete. Heads without bodies and torsos with no legs aren't usually seen in doorways, at least, not round here! I have five more ready to go - a pirate, a dog, a boy playing a saxophone, a witch on a broomstick and some dogs standing on a kennel. Can't wait to get stitching!

Your projects look great, and your DDs quilts are something else! Amazing.
