House On A Hill

Good morning! 
This is Summer Night House on a Hill from Hands on Design.. It is the cutest little house .. I started and finished this in one day so it is a quick one!

I did a few things different ... first of all I am not  a pin cushion type of stitcher .. so I just stitched the top portion and not the sides of the piece.. Also I left off the piece of wool felt and just stitched the grass .. I also changed the weather vane on top from a whale to a chicken :) I mounted it on sticky board and then added a torn gathered piece of red check homespun .. a blue and red plaid bow with a daisy on top .. and then I glued the 4 corners to this small probably 6 inch wreath .. The little chicken pin on top of the bow is from Just Another Button Company

I used all Classic Colorworks ..Pea pod Grass and stems .. Dublin Bay House ..Licorice red door and stitches around bottom daisies ..Queen Bee flower centers..Black Coffee most of roof..Muddy Puddle designs on roof and chicken .. Dmc 3865 flowers and house trim ..I stitched it on 28 count tea/coffee dyed light grey evenweave ..
we had 7 inches of snow yesterday in Northern Illinois .. It will be in the 50's today so hopefully things will get back to normal!

I love the way that design is mounted on the wreath. You must be getting very sick of the snow! We are just cold and rainy!
