Our house, in the middle of street

Well done the Madness fans who got the title! My house isn't actually in the middle of my street, but oh well it's a good song.

My latest quilting project involved making a likeness of my house from whatever scraps of fabric I had lying about the place. I didn't make this one for any good reason other than I fancied doing it. It's not like you can give a picture of your own home to someone else! It's nice to enjoy one's own efforts for once.
This isn't in any way proportional (or even from one view - it's all gone a bit Picasso on this one) but people who've seen my home were able to see what I was getting at! Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with the final result, and will hang it up somewhere to make myself smile. I especially enjoyed doing the little button flowers.
