Summer Blog Hop!

Jo from Serendipitous Stitching is hosting the Summer Blog Hop!  She has asked stitchers to send her photos of stitched pieces in the "home" theme. Then she sends the photos to other bloggers to display on their blogs as postcards.  The first postcard in the Summer Blog Hop is to me from "Jo who can't think of a clever nickname" herself!
Cherry Hill - Country Cottage Needleworks
Jo wrote this message:

"I'm a homebody.  I was an Army Brat and moved around a lot as a small child.  As a result I have only lived in two different houses since I was 21.  I like to be surrounded by all my belongings including my ever-growing stitching stash.  I love this quote from William Morris - "Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."  So my stash is safe on both accounts!"

Be on the lookout for two of my own home-themed cross stitch designs to show up on other blogs in the Summer Blog Hop, too!

Thanks for taking part in the Summer Blog Hop. It's a slow burner this one, blogs will be added over the whole of the Summer.
