Howard,

Here are some miniature Ten Cent City ornaments that Mary made for charity. I think they are adorable. She loves your patterns.

Lucy...

Let Mary know that old Howard is very impressed!...well done...I know that a lot of time and effort had to be put into making that many houses...

Are you sure she didn't buy them at the five and ten cent store?...oh, wait...there are no stores like that anymore!... :lol:

My very best regards...

Howard...

update...11-18-2019...

greetings to all...

well, this series of 20 houses...(which started out to be 12)...is finished...and here is photographic proof...number 20 may look a little drab in the photo...but when it's next to bright colors...both it and the colorful ones look even better...contrast means a lot...

i hope you've made a few of these little houses this year...i've enjoyed doing the series and sharing the free patterns and progress photos on the forum...please feel free to post pictures of your houses from this series for all to see...

note...i'll be posting a "family portrait" of all 20 houses before thanksgiving...

also note...in january i'll be starting on "chapter two" of the "ten cent city" series...stay tuned...

my very best regards...

howard...
