I Finally Made It!!!

Hello Everyone! How are things with you today??? Here the sun is out and so is the washing, have been to the dentists and got off very lightly, and the builders will be finished by lunchtime. Yay! The front of the house and the little yard area are looking great, so now I am going to have to get myself off to the garden centre for some plants in pots for the finishing touches.

Thought I would show you some stitchy, patchy, prettiness today. Do you remember this post from soooo long ago?? Well I have finally done something with the frames I got at the charity shop. Over the summer they did get several coats of white paint but progress was slow due to entertaining small boys and holidays. I did also cut pieces for some patchy owls but decided they are too big for the frames so I will use them for something else. So here they are….

… a pair of teeny tiny patchy houses with ribbon, ric-rac and button flowers.

I was deliberating over whether to have the glass in the frames too, but decided it wouldn’t fit over the buttons so they will have to do without.

I was a bit rushed off my feet last month and didn’t manage to submit anything to the Woolhogs Made It Challenge so I am making up for it this month by being ultra-early with my entry and putting these two little houses forward. Join in if you can… lovely yarn and buttons to be won this time. I’m off to add my entry now.

Enjoy your Wednesday.

  2. gorgeous! i always think textile-y things look better without glass, all that tactile loveliness remains unsmooshed.

    as an aside, i’ve changed internet browser and you *finally* show up as a blog i follow – hurrah! x
    oh, and ps email me if you need any help at all with folksy!

    • Absolutely right about the glass… Would totally spoil the tactile-ness of it. Glad you can “see” me now! And no doubt I will be there with folksy questions very soon lol!!

  3. I love them, they remind me a bit of the work of an artist, Michael Powell. He specialises in slightly wobbly buildings and I’ve done a couple of cross stitch pieces of his work. Thwy would definitely sell well 🙂
