WIP Wednesday

As always I have a few works in progress but this week I have been doing some hand stitching. I finally started the the Penny Rug SAL over at The House on the Side of the Hill.
I was not able to find a larger piece of wool blend felt for the the base of the penny rug in the color I wanted so I bought white and dyed it.
I expected the fabric to shrink so I bought extra but I was still a little short when I squared it up.  But I think I will be able to get everything on by just spacing a little less along the long sides.  Here is part of month one I believe Melody just posted month five a week ago, so I have some catching up to do.
I am trying to decide whether to give the door a french knot door handle or find a small button.  What do you think?
I have also just started May's block for the Raspberry Rabbit QAL.

I am hoping to have the stitching done on this block and ready for the applique by the weekend.

Wishing you blessings from our home in the woods.  Have a great evening!

Oh my goodness, is this ever cute! I say a button, but I love buttons!

Thanks for the email the other day...hoping you get something out of your garden<3 My strawberry plants were all pretty bad last year so I tilled them up and haven't replaced them. I'll have to go picking this year!
