First! A random house I can’t explain. It was called “House of Mirrors”, which I totally don’t get because there are no mirrors. I also changed it since the original block (seen here) had towers that looked like ears, so of course I wanted to complicate it instead and do a slanted roof.
And here is the Grandma’s Garden block for October, called “Geranium Pot”.
If you look closely (or click through to the Flickr site to zoom), you’ll see the words “shut the door” coming off the bee’s bottom. It’s something I’ve said, my mom has said, but MIL is oblivious of. So not universally a grandmother’s perspective, but close enough.
Here are the other blocks, which are now embroidered with other words of wisdom. Apologies for the strange photography, but I had to enhance the contrast a bit to show the stitching.
