In early 2009 I shared free on this blog my very first original design, a 4 part BOM called Wonky Houses.
I know there are some of you reading who remember this quirky design.
My Pop used to call anything slightly off centre a 'wonky', and I designed each house in this wall hanging in honour of him.
To this day, WONKY HOUSES holds a special place in my heart. It now lives with my daughter Kezzie, and I think I'm missing it so another one should be stitched for me don't you think? :-)
This week's contest at the Quilting Gallery is themed "Buildings & Houses", so I have entered my Wonky Houses!!
If you love this design too, would you consider voting for it? You can place your vote HERE. I know it's silly, but I'd kinda like to win this for Pop. He was more than a grandfather to me because he raised me as his daughter, and I wasn't even his blood relation. When he married my nana she'd already had three children grown up so he never experienced raising his own offspring.
My mum died when I was three, so I was sent to live with Nana and Pop, and let me tell you that no child was loved more than I by my new 'parents'. Nana passed away in 1982, and Pop in '84 from a broken heart. He just didn't want to live another day without her.
So Pop, this one's for you.xxx
You know, if I'm really going to honour my sweet Pop, then I think I should share WONKY HOUSES with you one more time.
The week is over, but the pattern can still be purchased HERE in my shop.
God bless each and every one of you!
