Imagine a beautiful country house with animals, plants and flowers intertwined with nature. A house where delicious cookies are baked in the kitchen, beautiful flowers bloom in the garden, you can do all your favourite hobbies and stitch your cross-stitch project on the veranda. Here is world that Tania Santarelli presents in her second book for you. She designed cross-stitch patterns that will add joy to your life: farm life, garden, flowers, people, kitchen, animals, handicrafts, sewing, embroidery, patchwork, hobbies… The cross-stitch projects within this book are designed to adorn the house once stitched or to help celebrate those special moments in life.
The essence of this book is to keep it simple, fun, and easy to stitch. With that in mind most of the designs are sewn using only whole cross stitch, and back stitch is kept to a minimum. A stunning collection of patterns for both new and experienced stitchers alike.
