Happy house

I had two partners this month, and my second partner is Sharyn from Qld that wanted a house in brights.  I have never made a house block before, so just like Sharyns October partner (Jeneta)
 I decided to design one myself. 

I have to say, its not as easy as it seems, the roof is the most challenging.  I was not happy with the fabric I used firstly, as it was dull in comparison to the bright house, so I appliqued a new roof on top, call it re roofing lol.

This house comes complete with a lush lawn, pretty flower box, dancing tenant and pet dog, it has a smart floral button handle to get into the front door.

Great job Sue. I love the fussy cut girl in the window and the dog! Sharyn will love this!
