Block Party House Block Finished!

My entry for Love, Laugh, Quilt's annual Block Party is done!  It is my first attempt at paper piecing......I found the pattern at Paper Panache.com and they also have a wonderful tutorial on paper piecing but I also found a fabulous tutorial at quilterscache.com and between the two I sort of got the hang of it........I only sewed a couple of pieces backwards and I learned that one should probably pull the paper out as you go instead of waiting til the end.  I finally was able to get the remainder of the paper out by washing my block.
Anyway here is my block and I am also including the links to the web sites I mentioned.........happy paper piecing everyone!  Oh...by the way......those are ducks flying over the house not reindeer...LOL.......
