home of a needleworker (too!) and a winner

This past week, I managed to finish this little design




from Little House Needleworks, it's "Home of a Needleworker (too!)". I'd always loved the first one but never got around to stitching it, and then when this one was released, I knew I had to do it instead :-)



This was stitched on 40 count Vintage Examplar from Lakeside, with Crescent Colors threads, one over two.



And I couldn't help but think of these ladies while I was stitching this. What do their homes look like? Is their home even still standing? I know their lives are so very different from mine. Yet, they are stitchers, needleworkers, crafters, just like me and that makes us sisters in spirit. I prayed for them, their family, and for their homes, which are the homes of needleworkers, too. :-)

Thanks to my readers that posted about the Haiti by Hand craft supplies drive.
There were five ladies who did and I entered their names in the random generator thing and Angela came out on top, so the needlecase goes to her :-)
Hope you like it Angela!

Andrea, what can I say! I still can't believe I have won your amazing and generous giveaway! Thank you so much :-)

Your Home of a Needleworker is wonderful. It's such a pretty design. Imagine living in such a lovely house. I'd even be happy with the tiny house nestled in the H!
Perhaps I should get the chart first and then work up to getting the house .....haha.
Lots and lots of thanks again. Angela xx
