A Place We Call Home


I started on this a couple of months ago and finished it last night. I've only been doing a little on it every now and then, but have still thoroughly enjoyed working on it. This is my first Country Cottage Needleworks design. I just loved the verse and thought it would be the perfect piece for our new home we moved into last February as our new home is also our first self-build!



I don’t think I shall be having quite as much stitching and computer time this week as usual, which doesn’t bother me at all. It will be because my eldest Jason came home yesterday to stay for the week, so I’m very excited…I just love having him home with us! Although we chat on the phone and email regularly I’ve not seen him since Christmas and I probably won’t again until next Christmas, so I shall be making the most of our time together!

I have adored your stitchings. I love CCN designs and seeing yours inspires me to get busy stitching some of my own CCN's. While browsing on your blog I realized that our tastes our very similar.
