I'm still here, too. With little progress to show...some quilts got in the way :-).
But I've managed to make some more houses and trees and after a while I found out, what I disliked about my first houses... they are so straight.
Here is my latest one and all houses and trees so far:
Maybe there will be a dark sky with some more stars....

Sharon @ Indigo Threads here.
I finally got all the letters in my saying made, and am now about to sew them all togther. I'm adding 2 inch strips to the top and bottom of all the letters, hoping that will make it easier to get them all relatively straight and readable. After that, I'll start sewing them together. If anyone has any tips for me on this, I'd love to hear them!
This is the saying I'll be using on my project. Some of these letters I left purposely tall so that I could cut them down to the height I needed them. I think that sizing the letters is kinda hard. They came out bigger than I was expecting. But, I've learned a lot and next time I do this, it will probably be easier. It's been such a help to see how everyone else has put the letters together, and probably the most help for me was Brenda's (Scraps and Strings blog) tutorial on strip-pieced letters. Thanks, Brenda!
