My Own Sweet Home
CROSS STITCH PATTERN READY TO DOWNLOAD, DESIGNED BY Tempting Tangles
A little paradise, in cross stitches...
A wooded house, painted in two shades of blue, plenty of interesting architectural detail (note all the different shapes of windows)... Its finest feature however are the paned windows.
There are two options for finishing the decoration of the glass pane above the sash window. One is a combination of little octogonal motif, the other one features a rising sun motif. It is stitched in a Jessica stitch, a fine combination of long stitches that form a circle. This is characteristic of the works of Deborah A. Dick, designer of Tempting Tangles, who often includes little challenges, as well as detailed explanations, to keep you interested throughout your stitching.
Birds, trees and Quaker style medallions and motif surround the little house, shaping the motif into a heart. In the lower part of the sampler is a little text::
Be it ever so Humble, there's no place like Home
