This whimsical little cottage, floating above all the noise below, can represent any season simply by changing the colors of the theme. Make it fit your dreams!
This started out as a solid white cottage design. I was thinking about Christmas at the time. I thought it would be nice on a tree or in a window. After it finished sewing and washed out ,even though it was beautiful, I still wanted it to have color. Specifically flowers and vines. Hence the addition of the yellow windows and botanica.

Of all the cottages I’m made to date this is my most ambitious. It all started with a simple watercolor image of the pot with a couple of sprigs of green growing up on it and a big door of wooden planks. I never planned to make it this elaborate and not even in my dreams did I consider it could be.
I never know how my freestyle designs will turn out because they are not planned. I start with a simple image and literally design all the rest of it freestyle on the screen of my computer within my digitizing software. The design evolves with each day into something I can hardly believe it could be. This one took me 4 weeks off/on with the last week turning into 20 hour days as it was becoming a bit long in the tooth, even for me. Not to mention that I have other designs I’m anxious to make.

I ran across this free artwork a few years ago. I didn’t know if it would be well received or not. So I have hung onto it. This is actually the first cottage I made. There is so many details, hence all the thread changes. But it is worth it!
