a Summer Blog Hop and a Small Finish

I am participating in the Summer Blog Hop hosted by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching.  Jo has asked stitchers to send her photos of stitched pieces following the theme of  "home". Then she sends the photos to other bloggers to display on their blogs as postcards.

I have received a lovely postcard from Astrid of

along with this message:
"I'd have to say that home isn't just a place, it's where you find family and love and I'd like to think I have plenty of homes!  Even though this is my parents' town and I never lived there, I consider it my home too.  (Especially since they still have some of my stuff!)"

*If you would like to participate, there is still time - pop by the Summer Blog Hop page for details.

My latest finish is this little lighthouse, shown alongside the fabric I plan to use for the backing:
I found the free pattern here: 
Happy Summer! and Happy Stitching!
