pressy for friend's housewarming - and a quick tute

Our friends have recently bought a new home and just moved in this month. I expect them to hold a housewarming party in the near future so I prepared a housewarming gift for them. I've been thinking about it for some time so today I just put my thoughts into action.

I drew a picture of a little house:

Transferred it to a piece of calico (sorry for the wrinkly calico. it's the result of being in the dryer for an hour....and i did try to iron it...for half a dozen times....):

And I made sure it fits a big embroidery ring that I already have:

Then I used a small zigzag to sew over the drawing. This is the final result:

Doesn't it look nice on the wall?
