Sneak Peak: Look What I Learned!

I picked up this cute kit (along with 4 others similar to it) at my local Salvation Army for $2!  I was driving my gentleman around for the day (a side-job I do weekly) and had nothing else in my bag-of-tricks-of-a-purse so I set to reading the instructions & organizing the yarn.  

Well, I accomplished all that so quickly, I ended up starting the pattern.

My french knots (the orange filling in the roof) aren't very good - these are my first attempts.

The pattern reads "A home should be clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy."  I don't know how much I agree with the "dirty" part unless it just means "slightly cluttered" haha.

My brain has started turning a mile a minute again (oh, how I missed such unencumbered inspiration) with all the mixing of embroidery and knitting it can think up. ....
