Vintage china and spring houses

 At last I finished this gorgeous cross stitch design - Spring Houses by Waxing Moon Designs.  

I love the colours in this.  You can stitch the houses separately as I did previously with the Christmas Houses.  I decided to stitch mine in a row and I'm really pleased with how it has turned out.  I added some flowers to the fences between the houses to give it a coherent look.


Which house would you like to live in?  I think I would like to live in the blue house with those lovely window boxes.


I looked out a lovely spring teacup and saucer - the colours just go so perfectly with this little stitch.  The cup and saucer are Hazeldean New Chelsea design and I got them in a charity shop a few years ago.  You can see more of them in my blog post here.

Now my usual big problem of how to finish this off!

Love, Liz

Very pretty! I did a set of Waxing Moon houses last year-wish I had thought to put them all together like this instead of stitching them separately. I love the way this looks!

A beautiful finish and that is a lovely idea on stitching them on one piece.

Do you know, I could live in any one of those sweet little houses. Your street of houses is gorgeous. Such pretty colours and lovely cross stitching.

Beautiful job on your Waxing Moon trio. I love how you made yours into a little neighborhood. This is one of my favorite stitches. The Summer trio is in my WIP pile and I do need to pull it out. Seeing your Spring Trio motivates me. Happy stitching.

Beautiful teacup!!! I love the touch of flowers you added. It really does pull it all together perfectly.

The Spring houses are absolutely gorgeous, and I love the little flowers you added to the fences. I'd go for the blue house as well! And what a delightful cup and saucer! xxx

Beautiful Spring houses. The flowers between the houses and against the fences is a lovely idea, a good finishing touch. Gorgeous china which does indeed go so well with the houses cross-stitch. I am so looking forward to flea markets and car boot sales starting up again so I can go china hunting. It is so much fun. Keep well Amanda x
