Building a House

Yes that's what I've been doing! Building a house on my CSH Shores of Hawk Run Hollow! I absolutely love block 3 and although there is a lot of stitching in this block I'm not phased by it at all and am really enjoying it. I would love this to be my house!

As I mentioned in my last post I basted my fabric for Just a Thought Sampler Garden Casket and this is what I managed to stitch on Sunday and Monday. This will eventually be one of the casket ends.

Finally more progress on LHN Needle and Thread. I have actually done more on this since I took this picture and love it. It's so quick and easy as there are only a few colours.

I have been so lucky of late as I have won three blog giveaways. You may remember that first off I won Christine's giveaway, then the one Robin had on her blog and now I have won Susan's giveaway for a pair of gorgeous pink scissors! I am so excited by the prospect of receiving these gifts! Thank you so much to all three ladies. I will be having a giveaway of my own within the next month or so when I decide what it's going to be!

Finally thank you so much for all the lovely comments you left on my finishes in my last post! I do love your comments and treasure each and everyone of them.

Have wonderful Easter!

Hugs

What wonderful luck on the giveaways, Sally--it is such fun when you win, isn't it?

Shores is just lovely--I think I may just have to break down and buy this one myself. I already have Villages and am working on Christmas at HRH, so it is hard to resist Shores (especially after seeing your beautiful stitching on it!!)...
