Welcome home

Another final cross stitch finish over the weekend - Welcome Home by Country Cottage Needleworks.  Stitched on 16 count aida fabric on my frozen raspberry dyed fabric.


Not sure if that was the right fabric to use.  Think it would have been better on pure white.  Anyway it is done now so I'll just have to live with it!  My red dotty vintage teacup matches well.


I loved stitching the little red house - so cute!   Don't know why I like stitching houses so much, perhaps because they are so straight and the stitches are easy to count.  I've just started a new stitching - this time on 18 count aida.  Oh my gosh! It's been a while since I stitched on that and I struggled at first - it was tiny!  My eyesight aint what it used to be!


Hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend.  Back to reality now!

Love, Liz

That's a lovely one, Liz, and I actually think the background works really well with it. And how gorgeous is your red dotty teacup? xxx

It's delightful Liz. I love the blue door and the polka dot bow is a nice addition. Your dotty teacup set is such a lovely find....x

Houses are one of my most favourite things to stitch too Liz and this one is a beauty. So fresh and pretty in that white frame with it's red spotty bow.
