I sure love embroidering cottages! This one was just as fun as the other ones I have done. I used a wide assortment of threads as usual, including DMC, Cosmo Seasons and Valdani. Every thread used is a variegated or over-dyed except the bright yellow one in the center of some of the flowers and the French knots over toward the right side, that is a DMC Craft Thread.
I decided to cover the house with vines, I hadn't thought of that idea before, it reminds me of pictures of vine covered English cottages that I've seen.
A couple of close ups of the flowers. What cottage scene doesn't have a lot of flowers? You can't have too many, I think!
Now, a couple of kitty pictures:
This is Sarah and Tigger. In case you don't remember, Sarah is one of our newest kitties. We adopted her and her baby, Pepper, last spring. Well, Sarah has decided that she's in love with Tigger. She wants to snuggle with him as much as possible and loves it when he gives her a bath. She thinks he's just the best thing ever and I think maybe he loves her a little bit, too.
It's so sweet to see these two together, I think they are going to be Best Friends Forever!
Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!
