Cottages and more cottages
I know we all love cottages, one of my fave motifs and especially when I can embroider them. Here are two with some interesting techniques. The flowers beside the woman in the painted cottage are embroidered in the 'air' so to speak. I do them on solvy and when it is washed away, I have little free-form flowers. The cottage with daisy flowers cut from trim and then painted. A lot of french knots in this one.
