Building houses.....

Greetings friends and fellow stitchers!


~ I wanted to show the houses I've been constructing of late.... I certainly don't have my builders license, but have been hammering away at these homes none the less.... I absolutely love stitching ANYTHING with a house in it!

First, here's my completed project of Liberty by Midsummer Night Designs~~~

~ A small quilted piece to lay flat on the table, or hang on my wire tabletop stand.... I felt like a few appliquéd stars spruced up things a bit....

Next, I just HAD to stitch up Liberty House by With thy Needle & Thread... The color palette is just perfect for the Americana collections we all have....
Liberty



Liberty


The American flag is waving in the breeze and what's not to love about the gorgeous red house?....

Last, but certainly not least, I have laid all the bricks, put on the roof and installed all the windows in The Scarlet House Ann Priest sampler..... This is going to be a gorgeous reproduction sampler, once completed~

image

I need to get front door painted.... That's the next thing on my to-do list!

image

... Please be safe, my friends, as we begin observing Independence Day... Remember why Americans pay tribute to our country, our freedom and our liberty...

Blessings to you all~~~

Faye

Beautiful stitching Faye! I like stitching homes too but for some reason I dislike stitching the windows. I have both of your patriotic charts and hope to convert them to Canada Day stitches in the future.

Love the finish for "Liberty"! And, now I am going to have to get my hands on "Liberty House" too.

How did you get them stitched up so fast?? Your needles must be smokin'!

Love Ann too...she is going to be a real beauty, Faye.

Laura said...

Faye, they are just beautiful! The Liberty House one by With Thy Needle, did you stitch it like the model & chart instructions (40ct & 2 threads) or did you change it up to suit you?
