Little Houses No. 2

Hi everybun! Whew! I made it. I told ya'll I would have this pattern ready today and I just made it by a bunny whisker! I have a tendancy to get carried away when I'm designing something, I'll add one more little thing that looks cute to me. This time it was the little black buttons in the patchwork. Of course, I didn't have enough of them and the store was closed on Sunday and Monday so I had to wait until today.

I decided to make mine into a pillow, but this could also be a cute wallhanging. It measures 12" x 12".

I used my Valdani Folk Art floss collection and Black. The Pattern and the Floss is available in my Shop.

I started stitching this project two weeks ago when I was in West Virginia visiting my best friend. She took me on a zip line tour! I'll have more on that adventure later. Fun and scary!

Wishing you a magical and happy week!
xx,

Well my dear--you have done it again!!! Now I will have to do another order--what with that pretty new church stitchery and then those new hanger designs the other day--or and don't forget the new rabbit--you can stick her in the package to play with miss gracie!!!
Hugs, Di and you know 'who'???

Cute design and that floss is so pretty! I am using my Valdini right NOW in fact. Well, not at this very moment of course.
I have been on a zipline that went from mountain to mountain but these new tour ones look like so much fun! I would love it!! I went bungee jumping once on one of those crane ones. BORING!
I went indoor skydiving in one of those arenas. Fun but didn't do well.
Ziplines...FUN!!

Hi Shell,

The pillow is darling, love the colours and sweet design. Thanks for showing us.
Isn't it funny how we have terms we use in our various countries. I have never heard of a zipline - is this when you went on your trek?

Hope that you and the bunnies are having the best week. I said white rabbits to my husband this morning as it is Wednesday over here.
Hugs
Carolyn
