OPAM...2012...Little House On The Hill!!!


Been a bit slow on the stitching front here...but luckily enough I did manage to finish a project for OPAM (One Project A Month) for January...
I have joined for the 3rd year this year...and I'm sure I wouldn't even be completing 1 project if I wasn't in this!!!
OPAM is hosted again this year by the lovely Kris and Peg...Thank You So Much Gals!!!


A little hand painted house button which was a project for one of our Stitching Days hosted by Fiona and Sylvia...This was so cute I thought...I fussy cut a few little  houses and stitched them back onto the  fabric in a couple of spots...




I couldn't find a frame for the little house and fabric so Deb (no blog) suggested I just add a piece to the ends and sides...she quickly chose one from my stash...



and all framed up now and fitting nicely!!!
Thanks so much Deb!!!

I love your little house on the hill, I always enjoyed seeing on the header. It looks great framed! You've got done beautiful ocean shots there now, very summery! Though it dosent feel very summery with all this rain.

Dzintra!

I feel as if I have not "seen" you in so long! Oh yes, FOREVER YOUNG as we play and create and LOVE...I think that one is the trick, the elixer of life.

I hope your weather is good; our winter is fizzling out with hardly if NO SNOW! Strange. But we are ready to take on spring rather early!

LOVE TO YOU! Anita
