A Finish and a Lovely Surprise :)

 First for my finish -
I finished this little freebie that I was working on. 
"Village et Moutons" from
I stitched it on Natural 28ct linen over 2 threads.
Naturally I changed ALL the colors :)
I also changed the 2nd little house because
it just wasn't symmetrical.
Yes.....I know I have issues.
But I do like the way it turned out.
I listed it in my etsy shop this afternoon :)

 I finished it with some vintage buttons and lace
and used blue and red Homespun fabric for the pillow.

And now for my Surprise -

On Friday I was blessed to spend the day 
with Cherise of Sewingly Along.
We became friends through blogging
and this was our first "face to face" meeting!
She drove down to my neck of the woods
and we went shopping at Needlepoints,Ltd
and then M & L yardage (of course).
After our shopping, we came back to my house for lunch.
She was such a good sport to eat everything
I made (even with my food allergies)
She was a lovely guest!
Look what she made for me!
Even that little strawberry card is stitched by her!

 Can you see the beading on those strawberries?
This pillow just makes me happy!
I am a very lucky girl indeed :)


  1. awesome!! all kinds of good cross stitching and a new friend to boot!

  2. The sweetest people are crafters :-)! You scored BIG time. I am really glad that you and Cherise had a great time :-)! I know Cherise is probably calling you Obi Wan after the field trip to M&L. The card and pillow are truly beautiful :-)!
