They All Live Together In A Little Crooked House

While making fabric for the blocks in the previous post I noticed that some of the pieces were looking like houses.  So for fun I started making a few.  These little guys were the first.  My engineer son thinks the one on the right is not a house, but I must admit it is my favorite.
It reminds me of this nursery rhyme:
There was a crooked man
And he walked a crooked mile
He found a crooked six pence
Upon a crooked stile
He bought a crooked cat
That caught a crooked mouse
And they all lived together
In a little crooked house.

When I was finished with my 15 minute play blocks I had also finished these crooked little houses.  I might have to make a whole crooked little village.


  1. Love the houses. You should make a village.

  2. Have fun with your village Em! 8-)

  3. Can I come and live in one - love these real old cottages which have stood the test of time but look like they may fall down anytime - not much light inside though...

  4. Love the wonky houses. You should make a wonky village. I could see this in red/white/green for Christmas. Too cute!

  5. Your houses are lovely. The house on the right looks like it took a tumble in a strong wind.

  6. How fun! Intuition quilts are so wonderful. Looking forward to seeing where this goes!

  7. Love your crooked houses! Yes! For sure make a whole village. That will be so cute!
