Lovely fabrics, PIF and another house

The title almost says it all! But I wouldn't be ME when I didn't make a story out of it, so read carefully :)
When I was in France last summer I bought some thimbles in Paris for a personal swap with Joan and she sent me some beautiful handdyed fabrics in return. Actually she surprised me with that, because she sent more than she should and the fabrics are from her newly released Casi Verde Collection.

I also received a PIF from Mare. Actually we signed in (a year ago) at each other's PIF. She made me a lovely fob in blackwork and added two yellow roses to it. She sent it in a cute little box, together with some floss.

And of course I have been stitching last week. Most of the time I was busy stitching on a gift, but I also finished House nr. 4 of the HOHRH. I love the way the houses look now, I finished the first row, only eight to go!

These fabrics are a dream. Now you have to think about what to stitch on them. It must be very exciting to find the perfect projects for them.
Houses looks terrific.
