Seasonal Houses

Tonia of OakHaven Designs hosts a Seasonal House SAL for members. These designs are small, fun and quick to stitch. I stitched mine individually, to be finished into scissors fobs. Designs were stitched on 32ct Belfast using DMC threads. I had to change the fabric for Winter House because the white house did not show on the Belfast linen. Thank you, Tonia, for this fun SAL. I really enjoyed the stitching.

I joined HoE For The Birds Exchange recently. We can stitch any design as long as there is a bird in it. I chose a freebie by Carole D. Love this design, I had stitched it twice. Design was stitched on 28ct Cashel linen using DMC 335 and 3021. I am so glad that my partner, Lisa S, loves the pin cushion. The picture of the pin cushion was taken by Lisa.

The next picture is an update of my Eiffel Quaker. I am almost halfway with the stitching, really love the colors I have chosen. This design is by Nathalie of Jardin Prive.

I love French designs. The two designs below are charted by Dany of Danybrod. Both designs are for pincushions, one round and one square. The square one is only half done, don't you love the colors?

I had started another small project, "Simple Joys" by LHN. This design calls for crescent colors and WDW threads, very pretty colors. This should be pretty quick stitch, I hope to finish it soon.

August the 9th is Singapore's National Day. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SINGAPORE!

Thank you for visiting my blog. All comments are appreciated.

Happy stitching and take care!
