Carols NRR



Here is Carols NRR, it is the last one for me to stitch on, My choices for Carol were easy - I had about 3 different houses I thought of stitching and I had already planned the garden in my head ages ago.
The house is by LHN - Cherry Tree Inn, the garden gate and cat is a freebie by Chessie and Me, I stitched the cat - which of course is Tasha in Kaalund silk thread - colour Animal to match Tashas colours (she is a calico tortoiseshell) as Carol wanted us to stitch a cat on our squares.



The wee rabbit is by LHN - Cherry Tree Inn too, I just changed the colour of him.



The bee hive and bees came from a Victoria Sampler chart which I love.
I have tried to capture elements of what Carol was looking for in her neighbourhood and I really enjoyed stitching this piece very much.




Here is a picture of it in its entirity, Carol has asked me to send it to Becky as she has offered to stitch one of Carols spare squares, it'll be going there either tomorrow or Monday at the latest.

Apologies too for not appearing to be visiting many blogs and commenting, I have been round some but I have been so incredibly busy I haven't had a lot of time which I feel bad about, also there wan't be a lot of time on the agenda for the next 3 or 4 weeks as we are away for some of that time on holiday - so sorry about that - hope you'll forgive me!

Thankyou to everyone whos has visited and left me comments and to all the 'newbies' who are visiting and also leaving me comments - its so lovely that you want to I really appreicate it.

It was so much seeing the pictures of Hill Top Farm in your previous post. I used to read the Beatrix Potter stories to my children when they were small.

You live in a beautiful area Su!
