My love of cottages, this one Irish


I paint them, I stitch them, I quilt them and embroider them
Just seeing a cottage excites my artistic side
I grew up in one so I suppose that always is dear to my heart.
It is comfort and nostalgia to me.
Doing a series of this one Irish cottage at present.
 Their numbers are fast disappearing, I hope they find artisans to carry on the traditions.
 Some pieced and painted, others just painted, simpler too!
You may see some of my French cottages and one in NZ
Look back in archives
