A New Subdivision

The real estate market is booming on the floor of my apartment.


As you might have guessed, this is part of my upcoming show! I thought a little pastel suburbia would be just the thing to be enemies with the city on the other side of the tracks. I’ll probably add some mischief involving chimneys later—the tiny jailbird is standing in for a potential masked burglar.

I had a minor crisis last week over whether sidewalks and driveways should be gray or white. With some help from Twitter people (yes, I’m into Twitter these days in a minor way), I finally settled on white with gray cracks. (It should look much more tidy with everything sewn down, of course!)

  1. My DREAM house!! Oh wait a minute, my dream house has a burglar on it….better call the insurance man……or knit up lovgun *wink*

    …Not to mention the tree in the front yard has been cut down….Eh, I’ll take the yellow house with the blue roof instead.

    Lol, it be funny if you made a tiny fried egg and put it on the sidewalk….

  2. Another adorable element to what is sure to be an incredible installation!

    It’s been fun monitoring each step. I really can hardly wait to see the whole thing come together!!

    Keep it up!

  3. I keep waiting for a turtle pattern. Not a tiny one, but a regular size one. Just begging! I would break down and buy it.

  4. “Little boxes on the hillside. Little boxes made of ticky-tacky. Little boxes on the hillside. Little boxes all the same. There’s a pink one and green one and a blue one and a yellow one. And they’re all made out of ticky-tacky and they all look just the same.”

    Your’s are very cute.
