An LHN finish

I finished up this little Watermelon square the other night, just a bit of a break from the 40 ct fabrics. These work up so quickly and are so fun to do. The backing fabric and ribbon came with the little kit that I had ordered from Mary Kathryn (Ehandcrafts). I think I"ll use the fabric to make borders for the square and then make it into a little pillow ornament.

And has everyone seen this new design from Little House Needleworks? Its the first in the Little Women series. I couldn't resist and put my name in for an automatic shipment for these.....

Our weather forecast is so crazy - the temperature is going up to 30 degrees C today, with a humidex of 42 C. Good thing we are headed to the cottage first thing tomorrow morning. We would be going tonight but Nick is headed to the Brooklin Fair with his girlfriend. May be I can drag hubby there too :-D

Have a great weekend!

That is such a pretty finish Wendy. Yup, taking a break from that high count fabric is a necessity sometimes. : )

Great finish and I love your next design.

I'll trade your hot humid weather for our cold, wet liquid sunshine! Things are very green here but it's difficult to enjoy without the rain boots and poncho.

Wonderful little watermelon finish, congrats. I also went back and looked at the quilt it is lovely, the colors are favorites of mine too. The Love scripture project is just amazing. I may just have to find that one. CJ

Love your LHN finish! I've ordered so many of these that I think I should just place my order for auto ship as well. That new quilt pattern is really cute!
