Tiny Houses: Batik Series (finale)


I love how nicely batiks press so crisply...


...lines so clean and straight!


There!  Six more tiny houses completed for a total of 28 blocks.  Now, on to the next series...

Are YOU a no-reply blogger?   I try to reply to all comments but sometimes it's impossible because I get the "no-reply" blogger thing, meaning I can't email you back.... your email address is hidden.   *sigh*    So, here is how you find out if you are a "no-reply" blogger....

First clue: I don't send you an email replying to your comment.


To check to see if you really ARE a "no reply" blogger, first go to your Blogger dash board and click on your account name in the upper right corner.


Next, click on Blogger profile and you will see...


Now, click on Edit Profile and you will be taken to this page...


If "Show my email address" is NOT checked, check it!  Then, scroll all the way down the page until you see...


Click Save Profile and you're done!   Ta-dah!  

Now, if you... like me.... got caught in the Google+ change-over, it will take a few more steps to release you from that quagmire situation.  The lovely Venus from Venus Trapped in Mars has a fab post on getting back to your old Blogger settings HERE (link).

Hope this helps!  I do enjoy responding to all commenters... the folks I've met virtually via Blogger are THE BEST!

Tiny Houses: Batik Series (cont'd)


Paper-piecing is going more smoothly but I can't recommend it when when one is not 100%...


...trying to get the right size fabric scrap can be challenging!  Too easy to misalign or cut too small...  but it can be fixed thankfully.


And, of course, the glaring errors as just so very clear in photos...  *rolling eyes*     (I am getting better, slowly but surely!)

Tiny Houses: Batik Series


In order to keep fabric scraps organized and not all jumbled up in one huge heap to dig around in...


...I'm working with smaller heaps, one heap at a time.


These are the first two tiny houses in batiks....   more to come!
