You already know about my infatuation with cottages. But I don't live in one yet. Until we can downsize to our dream cottage, I'll just have to enjoy these views of the pretty little houses both on my morning walk and on my walls.
Cece, of All Dolled Up, was quite taken with my "Home Sweet Home" sampler. Who wouldn't be? I promised her a closer look, so here it is, below.
I'm hoping to have the very talented Janet McCaffrey, of Primrose Design, do a pattern for me so I can share this sampler with those of you who want to stitch your own.
Here are two more romantic thatch-roofed cottages and gardens done in stitchery. Don't they capture the feel of lush overflowing flowerbeds beautifully?
These vintage needlecraft pieces are oh so sweet. They remind me of the R. Atkinson Fox cottage print I have hanging in my studio. I think I'll share that one with you next time.
