Little House on the Prairie Schooler


That's what I call my block on Su's
RR. The house is almost complete now, I just have to finish back-stitching in the window panes.... then on to the garden between the house and the birdhouse. The house took quite a bit longer tonight than I had expected it to. Probably because I am using the center top square on a large Q-Snap.... lots of long reaches to do the stitches. But I don't want to stitch it in hand, I want these stitches to lay nicely for Su (although have found this linen - what kind is it?? - to be difficult to stitch on... the weave is a tad loose and some of the stitches want to go floppy - have never stitched on a linen like this one before). I hope to be stitching the garden for her sometime this weekend :-)

I forgot (again) that yesterday was New DVD Release Tuesday - got three - Aeon Flux for Mike, and Casanova and Tristan & Isolde for me :-)

Stitched on today: Quaker Garden and Su's Neighborhood RR

Your Little House on the Prairie (Schooler) looks great, Carol. Can't wait to see more of it! Su will be thrilled with it.

It looks lovely Carol.

Oooh, your house looks lovely, Carol. In fact, the colours you're using for the house look very much like the colours I'm using for yours, have you noticed?
Funny that you're using appliances to help you make your stitches neat and even. I always stitch in hand, and whenever I use a hoop or something, I mess things up badly...

I love this Carol!!! I can't wait to see the garden come to life. Great stitching. I am like Annemarie. I find my stitching neater stitching in hand. I guess it depends what you are used to:)

I really really love this - thankyou Carol, the linen is Weberei Weddigen from Germany, I bought it from Lekker threads an online store I use sometimes, mums linen is the same but is 29ct and a slightly different colour, I found it was a bit soft too.
