A June Finish, A July Start, And A Very Happy Camper...

Good Saturday Morning, dear friend!

I wanted to share with you my "June Cottage" finish...


I just adore it...I mean I really adore it!

I finished this pillow using a fabric that I found on total close out, and that is from one of the Dr. Seuss collection...it goes just perfect with the adorable little strawberries and summer theme.

And...

Once I finished the June pillow, it was time to start the "July Cottage"...


I am already loving the "Geranium" floss against the white, and I can't wait to add the blues. This is going to be a really fun stitch, what with the American flag and fireworks that celebrate our wonderful country's birth!

And...

Not to be forgotten, and most important, I wanted to share a picture of Little Brother as he settles into his new digs...



Needless to say, he is one happy camper!

Thank you for visiting on this gorgeous and warm New England Saturday, and I send you off with the hope that wherever you may find yourself today, dear friend, that you take the time to find just what it is that makes you a happy camper...and of course perhaps a stitch or two while you are at it.

Hugs

Great idea to finish all of the Cottages into pillow, what a wonderful way to rotate them out for decorating for the month.

Congrats to your youngest for getting his "own digs".
