the missing house

As you can see from today's progress photo, my obsession with my house has been solved! LOL! I received a very thoughtful comment yesterday from Teejay and after reading it, I realized she was spot on. As much as I was thinking about it, I knew I wanted to fix it but didn't want to frog it. So last night the last thing I did before I went to bed while I watched Top Chief was to frog it out. The lighter pink did look ok but I think it will look better with the darker pink. And I would always wonder what it would look like correct. :-) Tomorrow you all can be the judge because I'll post the finish photo. I only have a couple of hours worth of work left. Tomorrow I'll start on the Lori Birmingham piece for my pin keep lesson.

Last month KarenV from the UK posted about a really cool idea - and she had a great finish to show off. A zippered bag. I have not been able to get this out of my head no matter how hard I tried. And then it came to me. I have something that I can make into a bag like this! My Celtic Birds! It's not as big as maybe I would like but I think it will be perfect for such a use. And since Karen so kindly provided the links for the instructions, what is stopping me now? I'm hoping to give it a go this weekend.

I'm glad you came to a conclusion that you could live with. I felt the same way with my recent finish, Easter Parade. I picked my own colors and some of the things I chose I didn't like, I frogged about 3 different times. I really like the way it turned out in the end.

I've been obsessed with that link for the zippered bag too! Haven't found anything to use for it yet, may actually have to start something new.

You're making great progress! It's such a pretty piece :)

Glad my finish inspired you - I think Celtic Birds would be great as a zippered pouch. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
