Making a house a home

As we have now lived in our little house for over a year it was really overdue for me to start making some pretties for my walls. It is nice having the quilts about, but I wanted something to brighten up our cream (and very plain) walls in our living room.
I fell in love with this kit from Euro Japan Links at the Knitting and Stitching Show last year and it has been in my pile of things to do for ages because I was really scared of the applique.
Hubby went out for a day and I set to work on this. Although it did take a long while, I loved every minute of working on it and am quite tempted to buy another to make for my parents.

In last month's issue of cross stitcher I saw this cross stitch and knew I had to make it. It hangs above our coat hooks and is the first thing you see when you come in our front door. I love it and was so happy with it.
In very old news, I completed this little stitchery which I had started 2 years ago. All it needed was a few french knots and framing. It sits in a little nook in our spare bedroom, which can only been seen from the bed.

We have family coming to stay this weekend and hopefully we will get to take Max out on his first walk. Fingers crossed the sun stays out and some of the mud in our swamp of a garden can dry out =)
