A New England Chowder House

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket


I started working on Cathy's Neighborhood Round Robin tonight. She has asked each of us to stitch a house in her neighborhood that also has elements from the area in which we each live. Since I live in New Hampshire, which is in New England, I could not resist stitching a chart that has been in my stash forever. I just love this chart, but never had a purpose for stitching it, until now. I am stitching the Chowder House by The Cricket Collection (in the Kiss The Cook leaflet from 1990). Little weather worn shacks like this are frequently seen all along the New England/Atlantic Coast and islands. It is stitching up quickly, as I just love working on this Lakeside Linens Vintage Light Examplar that Cathy is using - soooo nice!!!

Stitched on today: What's the Buzz Exchange project, and Cathy's Neighborhood Round Robin

I had this chart pulled for your NRR with us, but you wanted a house with a garden. How about that?
