Little Houses Exchange

Hi everyone, it has been a little while since my last post but I sure have been busy.

First up I wanted to show you my exchange piece from Brenda.  Our group "Stitching Between Friends" went with a Little Houses theme and this is what Brenda made for me.

Its a Blackbird Design that she made into this wonderful pincushion.  Isn't it marvellous!

My piece for Brenda is still winging its way over the ocean, so hopefully I can show that to you all soon.

Here is my progress picture of the Carriage House Alphabet, I am currently stitching the fourth block "P" border and hoping to have the whole block completed over the weekend.  It will then have a little rest whilst I work on my HOE PS ornie.

I took some work into the framers on Monday.  One was "Marion" my recent finish and the other was LHN's Colonial Dry Goods I finished last year.  I'm looking forward to picking them up which will be in about two weeks time.

Until next time, happy stitching
