New Build - new neighbourhood



It was Barbaras turn to get a house built on her neighbourhood, and for me this time I found it surprisingly easier to think what to stitch for her.

The house is by the 'Irish Hare' and taken from the chart Love thy neighbour. I of course changed all of the house colours to tone in with Barbs neighbourhood. The tree and squirrel are an adaption from Sheepish Designs 'Betsy' The fence and birdhouse is from Prairie Schooler 'A prairie village II' The flowers/butterfly are my own as I wanted them to kinda tone in with Barbs as I wanted to link our gardens together. The wee bird, I shamelessly copied from Barbara so that he followed on from her little chubby birds.

If you would like to see how her full neighbourhood is progressing (2 blank spaces waiting for their homes - Carol next to build) then pop over to our neighbourhood blog. There is also progress on there of the other neighbourhoods.

I think your work on this block for Barbara is lovely, simple but very effective :-)

It is such fun to follow the progress on these neighborhoods. Your piece of real estate turned out so nice. The chubby birds are too cute!

Su,
What a lovely house you've chosen to put on Barbara's neighbourhood. I love the colours and your adaptation of the tree and plump little squirrel is just lovely.
Hugs, Angela
