Back to Playing

It was so GOOD to be sitting at my sewing machine today! I played with my house blocks. I cut black on white strips for sashing and laid them out with some tiny nine patches for corner stones. Hmm. Not loving it. Maybe I should try white on black fabric instead for more contrast? Any opinions out there?

I am liking the multi-colored strip pieced set for a border though.
I made another scrappy block with my applique scraps. I threw in a selvage while I was at it.
This is on my design wall to play with later. I found it when I was cleaning the studio. I can't remember where I got it -Lisa A., did you give it to me? I do love it, and I'm ready to do something fun with it! Someone put a lot of work into it, and it deserves to be finished.
I also worked on this quilt today. Almost done with this top!!! A very good day.
