SO delightful, Charlotte! It's just perfect.


Do you have a book recommendation for learning how to do the different stitches?


I have a bunch of old thrifted stitch guides here and those at the library, but also have found sources online. Janet at Primrose also hosts Stitch School which is fabulous. 
I really only use a few standard stitches like daisy and chain, back, running, double running, couching, blanket and feather. 
Hope that helps!


It all helps! It's been forever since I've done any embroidery, but your houses are beginning to inspire me.


Really is so inspiring!

This is beautiful. I also love your stitch book. I've been wanting to embroider on some pillowcases and was wondering what you use to transfer your images. If you don't mind my asking.


thanks! after my initial sketch, I use a vanishing quilt marker- made by Dritz I think.
