Summer Stitching Club

I've completed the next four hexies for Summer Stitching Club.  Unfortunately, all I've been able to keep up with is the embroidery blocks.  I'm hopeful that once autumn arrives I'll be able to start making the rest of the hexies and put everything together, completing the project.

Ready to be made into hexies.
I got a bit carried away with the "sprinkles" and you can hardly see the face on the snow-cone.

Originally the popsicle was red (cherry) but I prefer orange popsicles so I changed the color.

Wonky Houses

Here is the final Wonky House-Wonky House #4.  I believe this is actually my favorite and it's also the one that took the most time to stitch.

And here are all the Wonky Houses together.  I'm going to use this as a table cover.  Originally I was going to stitch the tree-house separate and use it as a stand alone piece centered on top of and in the middle of the other three.  But as I stitched the houses I just felt it would be nicer to have them all together.  Here's the finished piece.

(Oops!  The comforter on my bed is showing through.)

Wonky Houses

I have finished 3 of the Wonky Houses and have started on the 4th one.  In the beginning I was going to make the 4th house be a stand alone house in a frame but then changed my mind and added it to the 4th corner of the table napkin.  Here are the first 3 houses, all nicely pressed and one of all 3 together.

I also have a photo of the 4th Wonky House as I prepare to stitch it.  It's a tree-house, how delightful!

Wonky Houses

Here is the 3rd Wonky House of the series.  Now it's on to the 4th and final house-it's a treehouse.

Wonky Houses

I've finished the 2nd Wonky House block and I'm on to the 3rd Wonky House.  These blocks are so much fun to stitch.  Check this one out.

Wonky Houses

Here is the 2nd design for Wonky Houses, in process.  I still have some stitching to do on this one.

Wonky Houses

I'm taking a break from Summer Stitching Club and working on a 4 part project called Wonky Houses that is featured on Elefantz blog.  Here is the first of the wonky houses . . .

I am placing my embroidery on the 4 corners of a dinner napkin.  Actually, I'm only using 3 of the corners and then I'll make a small stand alone framed piece of the the final wonky house. It's different from the others so I thought it needed it's own special treatment.  Then I plan on sitting it in the middle of the other 3 houses, on either a shelf or table.
