'Geranium House' finish

I was able to finish two projects this weekend as we stayed away for 4 days up at our cottage. Here is the first project which I showed progress on a short while ago. This is Little House Needlework's 'Geranium House'. I loved how this turned out on the Pink Dahlia Jobelan fabric. The photo does not seem to do this fabric the justice but try to enlarge it to see how pretty the distressing is on it. This is a very soft and pretty pink. I changed a couple of the thread colors as I wanted to use some of the overdyed threads in my stash.

If you check back with me later this week, I will have this piece finished into a pillow along with my second finish completed also. To see the second thing I stitched this weekend, please check out my other blog: http://celebratetheseasons.blogspot.com/ .

Hello Heidi,

Your Geranium House is lovely, and you are right, the fabric has a beautiful distressed look. I can't wait to see how you finish it into a pillow. I know you will choose the perfect fabrics!

Enjoy your day,
