Little House and Country Cottage

Last week, I visited the Dogwood Patch in Hiawasee, GA. It was the first time I had visited the new location. My husband frequently goes "over the mountain," and I often send a list with him in case he has time to go by the shop. The women there are amused to see this man in a suit come in and ask for particular overdyed threads and specific counts of linen.
The Dogwood Patch is large and open, with a long table set up for stitching near large, bright windows. The owner, Terri, is warm and friendly, and the selection of charts and fabrics is extensive. I went prepared with a list, but of course, there were some other items I did not know I needed. I bought the three charts in the bottom picture. Little House and Country Cottage designs seem to catch my eye everywhere. The top picture is a free Little House design I picked up at a cross stitch shop last year. The Crescent Colours were sold as a thread pack.
I would love to start one of the new patterns, but feel I must finish at least one of my works in progress before beginning another. Maybe I will have another cup of coffee and wait until that feeling passes!

Ohh, I love Littlehouse Needleworks and Cottage Needleworks myself! I ordered that berries and black birds with the thread pack from Mary Kathryn's OLN shop. Just waiting on them to come in the mail. My round robin is being done with LHN! I have 4 projects that I rotate out.
Have a great day!

Your Sweet Little Berries is very pretty.
