When I was experimenting in Pam's beautiful journal, I had a stack of little quote clips from an old book nearby. This one inspired a quick sketch. Looking at it later, I thought it would make a good sampler design. Homebodies

It was great fun to draw the design, trying to make the clothes look like little houses but still be dresses or skirts and sweaters. Of course I loved stitching it too. It's mostly back stitch with a few others like satin and daisy. The chain stitch makes great braids. And I'm crazy about those bunny slippers! My mom had a really cute pair that appear in lots of her baby photos.

I finished it up as a pillow with a patchwork border of Tilly and then added some linen to tone down the sweetness. Very happy with and hoping to see your versions popping up in my flickr make-along group (on the right sidebar -->). It's so exciting to see what you do!

So, yeah, I'm very proud to be a homebody. How about you?
