Another Happy Dance

Good afternoon everyone,

Just a few words and a photo of my latest finish by Bothy Threads. It is part of a series of four New England houses, one for each season and this one is for Spring. I really enjoyed stitching it and hope to get it in a frame very soon. In case you know this design, I omitted the weather vane on the roof because I wasn’t keen on it. Typical eh?

I’ve just started a new sampler by Design Works called ABC Bears and I’ll show you progress when I’ve finished the letter A.

    this is really lovely ^^
    I also like all the little détails, the nest and birdhouses in the trees. Even if you hadn’t told us it was “Spring”, we’d have guessed. Has a definite Spring feel to it.

  3. That is wonderful Avis!

    This is gorgeous! Can’t wait to see the other seasons 🙂

  5. Very appropriate, considering today is the first day of Spring in the southern hemisphere! It’s such a pretty project, I can see why you couldn’t resist it.

  6. Looks fantastic

  7. What a quaint looking house and the additions of birdhouses are incredibly adorable :). Nice work and looking forward to seeing more from you!

  8. I have only managed to complete one cross-stitch so I am definitely impressed with this one!

  9. Such a lovely embroidery!
