Cathy's Neighborhood Finished!

Happy Hump Day Friends! I'll get right down to it since I just heard my washer buzz....you know life around here on Wednesday's - Laundry Day.... argh! :o(

Cathy B . . . . participated in Hello Neighbor Round Robins but she was in a different group than I was....someone had issues in her group, therefore she had a "hole" - I offered to be the "cork" for the hole and this is what I stitched for her:


Motifs taken from: "Bless Our Home" by Country Cottage Needleworks

We were supposed to add in our square homes, motifs, landmarks that related to our state or country. Since I, of course, live in the Midwest I figured a quaint cottage with an American flag would nab me just fine...that's pretty much how our house is - all American. The redbird or cardinal is Indiana's State bird....so I have Mr. Redbird sitting on the roof.

Here is Cathy's completed Neighborhood....isn't it just gorgeous?!:

Cathy B's Neighborhood Complete!

Well I guess that does it for me today....I believe tomorrow I will have another new start....maybe....

Until next time....love and best wishes, as you count your blessings and your stitches, from our house to yours! XXXXXX

A thing of beauty is a joy forever: Its loveliness increases; it will never pass into nothingness.

    Love the red bird that you added. I really like what you stitched but I guess I am a little partial 'cause I'm your Momma. Got my rump us and got the side flower bed clean out after I talked to you this morning.
    Love, Mom

  9. I like it, and I know there's a special place in stitcher heaven for those of us substitute stitchers! ;)

    Is Indiana considered the northwest? I always thought it was the midwest. Or am I a big meanie pointing out an innocent slip of the fingers?
