Which house would you choose?

Hi there cloud friends.  Where does time go???? It has been quite awhile since I posted.  Time just gets away from me.  I'm having lots of fun stitching  the Little House ABC  Samplers.  I have been following Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher.  She is stitching all the houses on one big piece of fabric so that is the choice I made.  They can also be stitched as little pillows.  You all know how much I like making those annoying little pillows so the big design works great for me! I asked my DH which house he wanted to live in so far.  We each chose one.

 I'm not sure of the name of the linen.  I just used some I had in my stash.  I am pretty much sticking to the floss that is recommended on the charts. I have added some red, DMC 3777. 

 Here is my house.  I love salt boxes!!!!

 However, I love Fall so maybe it should be this colonial with the pumpkin patch!! This was the choice of my DH.  I am sorry for the wrinkles!!!

 In spite of the very cold winter we have had, this little hellebore is blooming.  It is a bit tattered and I was surprised when I took a yard walk and found it blooming!

 This tree has been such a joy this winter. The red bark and the evergreens in the back woods have been so pretty. It is on the deck outside our family room window.  Do you see the little chickadee on the branch?

 One day we were out for lunch.  We saw the most fascinating view of the Olympics.  As you can see there were 3 layers, the mountains, a strip of blue sky, and then very dark clouds.  The only thing that does not show up is the way the snow sparked from the sun showing through that strip of blue.  It just took our breath away.


I hope this finds you all doing well and healthy.  Thanks so much for joining me today!!
