Strawberry House Finished!

I finished up "Strawberry House" yesterday. It was such a fun stitch. I decided not to "Doll it up" though. I liked it with just plain stitching the best. I'm thinking about stitching Queen Bee or Autumn Harvest now! :)

Strawberry House
Little House Needleworks "Strawberry House"
Fabric: 28 ct. Creme Brulee by R&R
Threads: Crescent Colours & DMC
Stared: 9/13/08 - Finished 9/15/08


In other news.... I'm a little worried about my friend Debby (Stitch Wizard). She lives outside of Houston and I haven't heard from her since before Hurricane Ike made landfall. I truly hope she is doing ok! I'm guessing she doesn't have power and I hope that is the extent of her troubles right now! Debby, you are in my thoughts and prayers - I hope to hear from you soon!!

  8. Wow!! You are such a fast stitcher!!!!! This is beautiful!!!

    I live an hour outside of Houston and although we are fine here, I heard Houston has lots of wind damages and still no power. I have friends staying with us from Galveston because their apartment is not livable right now...

    I hope your friend is okey, and hopefully it's just the power outage.

  9. Nice finish! I like it 'plain' too. No need to doll it up. Hope your friend is ok. I have family in the area and they are just without power but ok. Hope it proves the same for your friend.

  12. Beautiful finish. I'm sure your friend in Houston is just without power. I have a friend about an hour outside of Houston that didn't have power until Monday and she wasn't in a hard hit area. Her grandkids are out of school for the entire week because of the storm. I hope you hear from her soon. *hugs*

    I have not heard from Debbie either yet since the hurricane and looked here to see if she had left a comment as I am concerned too!! I guess they still will not have any power or too much clearing up do before going on the computer, maybe ?? I hope all is OK with them !!

  25. How on earth do you stitch so fast??!!! :) Please tell me that you spend hours and hours a day stitching, or I might have to kill myself. Kidding. This is a super cute finish, congrats. And so glad you decided to go with the white on your Celtic Autumn piece!
