I drew this little house for the hoop up and send swap over on flickr. This is my first time stitching something I've drawn myself. It made me super happy. I used a ton of different stitches on it and that made it fun to do. It isn't the most complicated piece, but so full of color and fun.

Here is a WIP pic of the new stitch I learned to do it. The wave stitch makes perfect little shingles.

I made lollipop style flowers with a bit of Amy Butler fabric and stitched them down in the center only with a few French knots.

Such a fun little piece!
