Houses and cushions

I've decided to make 52 little houses from scraps, one for each week of the year. I'm busy stitching the 6th this week, so a picture of the 5 already done is at it's place here. I chose the fabric for the sashings and I think it comes out very nice.
My grandsons 'ordered' a cushion for Christmas. They chose the figures from fatcatpatterns. The little one wanted a car as he is mad about them, it had to be yellow as it is his favourite colour. The middle one chose the fabric and the gecko. He already ordered a gecko quilt! And the oldest one is crazy about dinosaurs since he was a little kid, so the chart was chosen quicxkly. They all were very happy with their cushion.
I want to make a quilt for myself in red, my favourite colour. I made the first block, itis in combination with white and black. I'll need to make many more blocks, but it looks so nice that I think that won't be a problem.
Then there is the alphabet. I started it long ago and it had to be ready when the oldest one went to first class. In two years the little one will be in first class, ready to read and write, so my daughter suggested that it would be time to finish it by then :-)
The last picture is from the latest workshop, it will be a map to put blocks in the making and ready made in it. You never can guess what my favourite animal is... The red fabric is a fairy favor from an American Yahoo pal and it is so nice in combination with the catfabric. I will show more of it when it is finished.
