I finished the roof.  I am stitching offset horizontal cashmere stitches for the body of the house using three strands of floss.  Pretty cute!

Need More Finishing, Less Ribbon Binging

 Joann's was having a 60% off ribbon and trim sale.  Can you say sucker?


$1 per bag.  Who could resist?

And these

Where I started on Block Seven

Bedtime on Sunday

This really could be my new bedspread!  I am loving stitching on this and seeing it come alive.

Block Four of the Village of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Sampling

Here's where we left off

Building the fence

Cute table for Swan St Paddy's Day lunch

Last slat!

Bedtime on Thursday
The chart has doggies peeping over the fence but they look like dinosaurs to me.  I may leave them out.

Roof on Kelly Clark Welcome Sampler

Almost done
I am stitching the roof following the painting.  The dark gray lines are stitched using three strands of Uniform Blue by Sampler Threads.  It's the perfect shade of blue grey green for the paint.  The light gray is another Sampler Thread called Banker's Grey.  The chimney stacks are done in alternating mosaic and cashmere.  I hope there is plenty of stitching time today to finish the roof and move on to the house.

Block Four of Village of Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings

I'm a cross stitcher too.  I am stitching this on 28ct linen using two strands of DMC floss.  It is a big'n!  My husband asked if it was our new bedspread!?  

Started here

Ran out of door thread.  I need to make a run to Joann's today since The Needle Works is closed.
