Another little house finished and one started

This is the last of the three houses that I am stitching from this pattern. I stated in an earlier post that I didn't care for the other two houses so I am stopping with the three I have posted. They are easy patterns to stitch and really don't take much time to finish. They come with the floss included...I don't care for that too much because I have found that I often run out of floss. But again...they are nice patterns.
I am not sure what I am going to do to finish them. I bought a frame and considered putting one out at a time for the seasons....I also considered little bowl fillers...just haven't decided yet.
I am waiting on our "plumber" today. The drain from my sink and dishwasher and laundry area is clogged...dh gets so upset with me. He worked on in yesterday and got the clog to move to the opening but then it clogged and he was unable to move it. He says there was too much soap build-up. Sorry honey but there are 4 girls in the family and there is going to be a lot of soap...lol Hopefully it won't take much more to unclog it....just another day around here...
Seems like I am not getting much done outside. I did pull weeds for a while yesterday and we are going to mow later today...but there is much to be done...did I say I am tired? lol
Have a wonderful day and be blessed.

I like your set of stitched houses and like you I have found that very often I run out of the thread they provide...frustrating isn't it. Yours are very lovely.

Clogged drains are no fun - we've gone through that but it's always in the elbow of the drain and they need to be taken apart...done that more than once. I think it's hair for us that does it.

Hey Dianntha,

I love your stitched houses!

Sorry about the clogged drains. I have trouble from time to time with one in my kitchen sink. My daddy is a handyman in alot of ways, and he can usually fix it for me (thank goodness because plumbers are expensive)!

Were you able to get the gooey tape residue off the cafe doors? We want you to be able to use them! PLEASE let us know, okay?

Have a great day!

Been there with the drain problem, someone told me once not to use powdered soap any longer and that seemed to help..also to run just hot water and clorox or vinegar through your washer monthly..weekly whatever. Hope that you get things fixed, I hate water messes.

Hi Dianntha! Sweetie those little stitched houses are adorable! If we lived closer (much closer! lol) I would beg you to teach me how! It's winter here now, so I have the little coasters you sent me sitting out again. I just love them! Wishing you a lovely day dear friend!
