Sew & Tell Friday #19

I don't know about you, but I have a hard time coming up with blog post titles.  

Wednesdays (Wonderful Wednesday) and Fridays (Sew and Tell) are taken care of.  That only leaves me three days a week, since I don't post on weekends, to come up with clever titles, but I still struggle.

So it figures that today when I don't need a cute title, I came up with Little Pink Houses!


This week was spent working on a little of this and a little of that.  My Friday finishes are blocks for 
V's Call for Help Basics Home Gather.

  Little Pink House #1



Little Pink House #2



Little Pink House #3

While sewing, I kept singing John Cougar  John Cougar Mellancamp  John Mellancamp's little Pink Houses  for you and me.  What a blast from the past!!!


I hope to put all five of these house blocks in the mail to Victoria this weekend.

Would you like to make some?  Victoria is collecting house blocks through April.

Be sure to visit all the Sew and Tell Friday participants to see their accomplishments this week.  

Have an amazing weekend!

  7. I love coming up with names for posts and quilts. I, in fact, secretly envy the guy whose job it is to name the paint colors for paint companies!!!! Love those blocks, love that your block has become musical. Quilts often end up with song titles at my house!!!!
    What a great song to have stuck in my head on a busy Friday, I will have a smile all day, and it's your fault!!!
    Blessings,
    KT

  9. Love your houses! I am a JCM fan too... My name is Diane and my BFF in school was Jan and seems like every time we walked into a room someone would start up with 'little ditty bout...' you get the picture.

    (seriously need spell check :)

  10. very cute. the houses and the would-be title. I'm with you on hating to come up with titles. I'm just not that creative with words, so I just try to be as cheesy as possible instead. Hubby says I have cheesy down pretty well :)

  20. I like these houses. If you ever get to go to Nantucket they actually have a pink cottage or two. Bright pink like your second house! There is a bunch of little historical houses that are all painted in bright paints. (Maybe it was Martha's Vineyard.)Your houses make me think of them. It was so much fun to walk down those streets.
