Christmas Cottages and spaghetti :o)

I worked on some Christmas Cottage blocks today for a swap that I'm in. You make them in pairs (not necessarily matching) but then there is an "uphill" and a "downhill"... I have made 4 sets so far, but plan on making more before the deadline... :o)

There is crocheted lace along the rooftops and buttons for doorknobs (from that jar that I got at Apple & Pork!)... These are really fun to make!
And here is Jimmy at lunch time, having spaghetti... How did he get it THERE?!?! :o)
Hope everyone is having a good week! Thanks for stopping by!

The lace and buttons are nice touches! And don't waste your time trying to figure out how food ends up where it does - even at 5 and 8, my kids are still horrendously messy eaters. That is why we have a dog.

Hi Angela. :o)
Jimmy is just a cutie! :o) I like spaghetti as much as he does! :o)
Your houses are just precious!! Did you make that pattern yourself? It is just adorable. :o)
I am glad you are off to a great week. Our windows are finally opened the past two days and it is like a little slice of heaven, to me. :o)
Sincerely - Trish

oops -- I'm behind in visiting my favorite blogland people.
Love your houses. The up and down versions are interesting. Looking forward to seeing how they'll look together.

Jimmy, Jimmy, Jimmy. You're quite the little decorated eater, aren't you? (Does he realize he's so cute?)
