I do keep meaning to do a 2012 in review type post but haven't got around to it in the meantime I thought I would ta dah one of my embroidered houses.
Just before Christmas I had the pleasure of working on a lovely cottage that has become my favourite so far of my embroidered houses.
It was to be a gift for the customers friend and when I saw the picture of the house I knew it would be a lovely one to do:

The fun part in doing these I find are the "fantasy" touches such as hand embroidered flowers, roses round the door, window-boxes and bunting - my chance to use some artistic licence!!
I am taking orders for these, if you would like one they cost £52 framed and including p&p. I require a 50% deposit and balance upon completion. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
