Knock knock...

Earlier this year I signed up for Kirsty's Stitched House Ornament Swap.

They are the cutest little houses - how could I resist?  It took me aaaages to finally get round to making one for my swap partner, the talented Linda.



Linda's favourite colours are blue, yellow, green, pink and purple, and I'd also noticed she'd recently tried her hand at some hexies...  I wanted to do something a bit unique for her, so the idea of making the "roof" section out of hexies was born.  They look a bit like tiles and eaves don't you think?  I didn't like my selection of numbers available so the front door got a bell instead, and it smells nice too as I popped some dried lavender in with the stuffing.  :)



It was hard to draw a line on where to stop with so many possible things to add or enhance.  It's endless!

I hope you love it as much as I do Linda!
