LHN Happy Dance!



Season of Rest by Little House Needleworks (pillow from Trail Creek Farm)

It was a long, busy week at work, so I hadn't picked up a needle since last weekend. When I got home on Friday night, I just didn't feel like working on any of the projects that I 'should' be working on (Apricot Elegance, Miss Mary Mack, etc.) During the week, I saw Becky's post about her recent purchases at her LNS. It reminded me that I had Season of Rest in my stash and so I decided to work on it Friday night. So, about 9 hours later - it's finished! I enjoy LHN designs for this reason - they stitch up quickly. This particular design uses a pillow and fabric covered buttons from Trail Creek Farm, so it's an easy finish too. I really love the colors in the design and the pillow fabric. Soooooo, won't you dance with me?

This Little House pillow looks great Cathy, great job. A quick finish like this can really boost your spirits and give the zeal you need to get back to your other projects. Hope it worked for you.
