Hello, I shall want you congratulate on your models, you make me dream every day! I like stitching your houses. Above is a sample of all the homes I've stitched.

Nina from Hungary writes, "I would like to share some photos about my pincushion with you. I love this one! I also adore this leaflet Honeysuckle Manor, I think this is the best I've ever seen :)
Materials: 40ct Newcastle linen, hand dyed by myself, Victoria Clayton HDF silk threads and a MOP button.
By the way I'd like to tell you I have created a new stitchers' blog for your designs, and some fans shared some works and will share more,

Nina also sent in a picture of this stitcher's book. She made it as a birthday gift for her friend Eniko. (You better be careful Nina....everyone will be sending you their birthdate to make sure they are on your gift list!)
Jennifer writes, "I thought you would like to see another of my recent finishes. I guess I’m on a Blackbird kick! (This is stitched on 40ct Vintage Autumn Gold by Lakeside Linen using a Belle Soie Limited Edition Color.)
The pattern below was from a retreat by Dyeing to Stitch in Virginia Beach, VA.
Seeing everyone’s lovely finishes on your blog today has reminded me to send you a couple of my most recent BBD finishes. I stitched ‘Tis the Season earlier in the year on 32ct Vintage Pear and finished it into a pillow last week. I had the green quilting fabric in my stash and I love how the vines and leaves in the fabric matches the stitched piece so well.
I'm Belgian but I live in Caracas/Venezuela because my husband works in the Belgian Embassy!
Below are the pictures of her sweet pincushions.
I will post more of these tomorrow. I am caught up almost to the end of June....have more wonderful shots to show you. Many thanks to all who take the time to send these to me.
