My birthday gifts and work in progress on Little House Needleworks.

Hi everyone, it was my birthday yesterday (Saturday 2nd April) and I received these lovely patterns from members of my family, these included  Little House Needleworks, Country Cottage Needleworks and Sue Hillis Designs and I am really looking forward to starting them. I think my favourite is the Chocolate Shoppe,  I may start stitching that one over the next few days.
I loved this pattern, it has been on my wish list blog, my sister very kindly bought me this together with The Cafe pattern – thanks Sis!   
Here is my progress on Little House Neighbourhood, I managed to stitch the border and start the second panel by stitching the tree in the centre and the house roof on the right.
Other stitching news
I was hoping to finish another tutorial this week for my tutorials blog but I got busy with other things, I am hoping to get on with finishing the tutorial over the next week or so.
Welcome to my new followers, thankyou for the lovely comments, I really appreciate them all.
Happy stitching!
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.
Lynn B
