...but no sharing just yet. ;-)
I sat down and brainstormed over the weekend and I'm pretty sure I have my neighborhood theme set. It needs some tweaking and some work on the overall layout, but the main idea is there. I'm looking through my stash for house patterns and I've set aside a few, but I don't know if they're quite right.
I'm also not 100% sure how large to make my blocks. I was initially thinking 70 x 70, but some of the houses I'm finding (and really wanting to use!) are at least 50 stitches tall (and rather narrow at 20-30 stitches wide). That wouldn't leave much room for any yard items in front of the house, but lots of room off to the side(s). Not sure if I should increase my block sizes or find different houses...or re-work the house patterns I already have. More pondering needed...and any input would be welcomed!
