Little House Neighbourhood

While the Whitsun Bank Holiday Monday was a washout the sun was shining on my finishing and i managed to get the last stitches into my Little House Neighbourhood

I've had this chart for quite a while, and i don't know why it took me so long to get around to it because i love it and enjoyed every stitch

The blue house was my favourite while i was stitching although blue is not my favourite colour, strange that!


Now that I've finished the red house is getting my vote,
although in this photo it looks bendy it's just the way the fabric is lying


I used the recommended DMC threads and the only changes i made was to use the English spelling for neighbour and to put the little heart at the end of the saying to balance it up

 Until next time, 
Have a fabulous weekend xx

Very pretty stitched piece, has a real appeal to it - I'm trying hard to resist as I have so many designs waiting to be started. Lovely photography.

Remarkable. And by that I mean it is wonderful!

Love this finish Maggie! Funny but our Whitsunday is this coming weekend. We had a four day weekend this past weekend for Ascension Day which is still celebrated here in Holland. The holidays are really late in the year for 2011 but it gives us two nice long weekends in a row in June. :-)

Hugs from Holland ~
