Two updates for the price of one

For June's Smalls SAL I finished a little bookmark for a friend.  It's part of a BBD sampler called My Quaker House.  I just love this subject .... a little house with a big flower towering over it .... and this one is pink to boot.   Makes me smile every time.

Unfortunately, I didn't get much stitching time in for IHSW. I only managed to make the little house from above into a bookmark.  And all that involved was ironing a piece of fabric to the back of the stitched piece and cutting it out with pinking shears.  Not a good stitchy weekend.  No, it was a weekend for the dogs.

And speaking of dogs ..... here's River and Willow napping on the back of my couch.  Check out the tongue.  I guess he doesn't want his pic taken  :o)

Have a good day!


  1. What a cute finish! The pink house makes me smile too.

  2. A super finish, such a useful and beautiful present for your friend.

  3. What a sweet finish! And a couple of cute little nappers, too. :)
