May Releases

I love Americana designs and have quite a few in the LHN pattern inventory.  This month's "Freedom House" is in keeping with a style I started ten years ago whereby two saltbox houses face one another.  You may remember Two Red Houses, Two Blue Houses, Two White Houses and lastly, Two Yellow Houses.

Freedom House
Next is a really fun pieces called "Louise and Henry," designed to compliment "Bessie" who is the milk cow released last year.  (She's a favorite of mine.)

Louise and Henry
Louise is the sheep and Henry is the crow.  Or at least that's how I see them.

Last this month is the Calendar Girl, June.

June Calendar Girl
May brought the flowers that attracted the June bees!  
July is right around the corner.  Growing up, there was a saying about July that stuck in my head while I was designing that girl.  Can you guess what it was?  Not sure how many people read blogs these days vs. Facebook so we'll see if there are any responses.

Vonna sent me photos of the last four Calendar Girls.  All I can say is F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E-S!  I guess in my opinion it's saving the best for last!  
Of course I hope you like them all but there is something special about those four girls!

A friend helped me figure out how to add a search box onto the LHN web site.  Go check it out when you are there the next time!

I will be stitching this weekend....I hope you will be too!

  6. When growing corn, the farmer hoped it would be knee high by the 4th of July as a sign that the crop would be good. And I have not joined Facebook, so I will happily continue to read your blog.

  12. I like your Freedom Houses! I too, love patriotic pieces, not sure why, but could be because my birthday is near July 4. Yes, here in Midwest we say corn has to be knee high by the 4th of July.

  15. I use Facebook, but seeing your posts on Facebook seems to be a matter of chance. Rarely do you make it to my feed, and I never have enough time to check out all of my fb friends on their sites.

    I love Freedom House. I have to get it.
