'Geranium House' and being creative

This is the project that got the most attention this past week. I started LHN's 'Geranium House'. A few of the colors were changed since I wanted to use the overdyed threads I already have. I am stitching this one on a piece of 28 ct. Pink Dahlia Jobelan and boy do I love this fabric. It makes all the colors look great and even the white is really jumping out at you. It will be fun to see how the house will stitch up.

I will not be taking this along to our weekend cottage as I want to stitch part five of the Marquoir Marie~Rose and also make a second pinkeep for July. I will hopefully be able to get both finished while I am up there this weekend.

What kind of creative things are you doing lately? Are you stitching, sewing, quilting, knitting or gardening perhaps? Taking a little time each day to work on something you love really is a great thing. It makes you feel so good inside that you have more to give out to others. I would love to hear about what you are working on!

I really like your fabric choice, I have Geranium House too but haven't started on it. I've been working on small things: pin cushions, fobs and knitted socks :) Have fun at your cottage :)

I agree, this fabric is absolutely perfect for this design and is pretty all alone, too! :) You have made great progress and I look forward to an update to Marie-Rose!

Heidi -
This is looking amazing! I love how you've chosen the pink colored fabric - everything on it just seems to fit perfectly with the concept (in my mind anyway). I will be anxiously awaiting the finished results. I think it is going to be absolutely beautiful!!!!
I am looking forward to starting mine now.
