Slow Sunday Stitching: Country Cottage for May

This is my project today.  I love the little basket of flowers.  I've decided houses are not my favorite applique shapes because its so hard for me to keep lines straight. I swear those windows were lined up perfectly when I glue-basted them.  This is cute though, and will look even cuter with the embroidery added.  After this, I just have one more block to do for this quilt and I can start putting it together.  The pattern is from Shabby Fabrics.

The next block for my month of Harry Potter Project of Doom show and tell is a mandrake!

This will get some embroidery too.  I'll add some squinty eyes and a big "O" for a crying mouth.

Linking up today with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Stitching Sunday.

I like house blocks, but have never attempted one. Your embroidery will straighten out the windows which I did not notice until you mentioned. Not bad at all. I clicked on the pattern link and all the houses are adorable put together..

The basket of flowers was the perfect little touch for the house.
