Life is But a Dream
This is my first two-story cottage with my dream landscaping. It was a rather plain house artwork but it was pink which of course drew my attention. I spiced it up with my dream colorful landscaping complete with grass, shaped bushes, and a beautiful balanced tree in full bloom.
I added animal and bird buttons to these sew outs because I like them this way. Find links to these special buttons by typing the word button into the search box located in the upper right corner.
Remembering my mom’s purple alliums I created my machine embroidery version in the front flower bed. I remember carpets of colorful phlox in nearly every yard back home in Virginia every spring so I made the pink and purple phlox carpets on the ground of the front flower beds.
The overflowing flower box on the second floor is a dream come true for me as I have never been able to grow a flower box this great. So making an embroidery one is an assurance I can own one this beautiful with a plus that it will stay this way all season long without all the work year after year.
The trailing flowers and their vines are again a dream arrangement I have always wanted but no green thumb around here except on my computer playing with nothing more than my embroidery digitizing program and my imagination.
The front railing on the left side I left open especially for a kitty button to be placed as well as a grassy area where other buttons can be added with pets to enjoy. The tree is plenty spacious and open to add button birds. A chicken or two…or three…running around in the yard would be nice.
Included in each collection are all the elements and the house. PDF instructions included.

Thank you so much for the nice file on the Cottages you sent to me last week..How special you are..As soon as I finish this Baby Quilt I’m working on, I will start on my wee Cottage. By chance, do you have directions on how to make the precious pin cushion? Don’t want to be a pest but I love pin cushions and so does my Daughter-in-Law.. I wish you every success in this sight you have. Just by chance I found you..God is Good!!! Your sight is so cheerful..I love coming in for a visit…Hugs, Betty Morgan
Have you not received the printed instructions in the mail?
I don’t know which pincushions you are referring. I have two different ones.
I’ll email you.
