My cross stitch new start for 2021 is one of these lovely Autumn Saltboxes by Plum Street Samplers. I think I may have mentioned before that I enjoy stitching houses.
I love the autumnal colours in this particular one. I'm just using threads from my stash which match those in the picture - trying to use up what I've already got. Perhaps it is my age (or the fact that I'm a thrifty Scot), but I am constantly amazed at the stitchers who buy all new threads when they start a project. I can't believe how anyone can justify that when they may already have it. Mind you, there are some people who have more that 50 stitching projects on the go at any one time, so perhaps it gets confusing as to what they do and don't have!
Anyway - did you know that a saltbox house is a particular style of New England house. They were so named because of their resemblance to actual salt boxes. You can tell a saltbox house by its asymetrical sloping roof. I learn something every day! You can read a good post about saltbox houses here.
