I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of my cottage stitchery collection...
...this adorable needlepoint house with dormer windows, a red roof and red shutters. I discovered it a few weeks ago at an antiques mall in New Bedford, MA. How appropriate that I found a Cape Cod-style cottage while on our way to Cape Cod!
My new acquisition reminded me of our very own Cape Cod-style cottage. Last week, we had our first snow of the season — just a dusting really, like someone sprinkled a fine coating of powdered sugar on everything.
Anyway — I hung the needlepoint on my studio wall among the other cottage pictures. It looks right at home there, don't you think?
Whoever made this little gem wrapped it around a piece of wood in the same shape which gives it a bit of dimension. Pretty clever.
Isn't it the cutest?
