A Red Cottage.......

greetings all...... Brrrrrrr...... It has been unseasonably cold here in the Carolina's..... So, this week, I diverted myself from my large sampler project to stitch up this delightfully crimson design by Plum Street Samplers...... I simply could not put it down!!!!!




(Click for a better view....)


..... Check out the gorgeous flowers...... The olive green tones of GAST Mustard Seed and Mulberry are winning combinations.....and the HOUSE..!!.....



... The 36 ct Meadow Rue linen makes the whites really pop....




.....there is only one tiny section stitched over one....


...how will it get finished????? I haven't made my final plans, so stay tuned.......

....looks like it may be a Plum Street Sampler day today also!!! Go to her blog and see her newest freebie...




A big thank you Paulette!!!!! Another winner...

Have a SUPER great weekend everyone!!!!......

Oohh I've seen the red house sampler up on sites but not a finished stitched piece. It looks really nice.

And that freebie is super cute too!

Joy said...

What a sweet little red house!

Jackie said...

I've not seen a finished red house sampler either. You must have started it the second you got it! When I saw the Valentine Stocking I thought of you - it just screams Faye!

Catherine said...

Love this one ~ have it on my list to get! And I have the freebie tagged to print off!

Kathy said...

Faye, I have to agree with the unseasonably cold here in the Carolina's!! Definitely not my kind of weather.

I love the red house by Paulette. Your finish turned out really cute and I can't wait to see how you finish it. I'm still waiting for my chart to arrive.

Stay inside and keep warn and hope you have a great weekend.

Mary said...

Love that tiny little over one red house! I'm sure you'll come up with something amazing for a finish. Off to get a look at that freebie....

Bertie said...

A gorgeous project, beautifully stitched!

Love Paulette's designs! While the dude and I were fighting over who would walk the dog this morning, I offered to take the "freezing cold" evening walk...didn't work! LOL.

Oh so pretty Faye! I saw Paulette's freebie and want to stitch it right away too. Brrrr, it is cold here, isn't it?

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Brrrr is right! But that doesn't chill down your blazing needle, does it? Love that Red House -- waiting in my stack. And that stocking is too cute. What am I saying? You've probably already got it stitched up. Stay warm and stitch on, girlfriend. Love ya -- mean it!
