And here is the first picture of my own RR, called 'My Family Town'. On top of the whole RR I decided to stitch an overview of the small villages you can find in our province. All they have is a church, some houses, farms, haystacks and sometimes a bakeryshop. They are surrounded by pastures, typical Dutch, in which cows and sheep are grazing, swallows in the air, a familiar picture to me. My father grew up in such a village, and I spent quite some childhood-holidays at my great-aunt's , living in the country.
I am planning to stitch this huge RR with some Prairie Schooler's, (seasons) in the four corners beneath the top village, and fill the space in with (important!) familyhouse, houses of friends, a bookshop, library, needleworkshop and whatever I like. Ponds, trees, a park are also included. I think this project will take lifetime, but who cares?
I also started with another big one, the Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. Liezbeth, owner of Crownstitches, had done a conversion to GAST, Gentle Art and Crescent Colors. I will get one part of the chart, in addition with the threads, a month. I already know I can't stitch one part a month, but no problem eh?No picture yet, all I did yesterday evening was the cadre of the first house.
