Welcome to My House Blog Hop!


I'm excited to be participating in this hop! A big thanks to Carol from Just Let Me Quilt for organizing this for us.


***********************

The theme of this hop is (clearly) houses, and we needed to have a house or houses included in our project. My project has four houses. It is a table topper I designed that I'm calling "Around the Cul-de-sac."

The topper is a 24" octagonal mat, and is sewn in WoolFelt and embroidery floss.

There's some detail on the houses:

And lots of small flowers with french knot centers:

The houses sit around a center cul-de-sac, and are flanked by trees:

The pattern is available in my Etsy shop and my Craftsy shop.
