House on the Hill

This little "house on the hill" has been on my list of squares to stitch for a while now :)

It reminds me of the first house my husband and I bought together...a little white house high on a hill, overlooking the countryside with a big fig tree out the front. I would've liked to add a few extra the swing that hung from the tree, or some bats like the ones that used to eat the figs during the night...but we are talking about a one inch square here :)

Thank you for all your lovely comments about my stitching so far....reading them is a highlight of my day :)

A little white house with a fig tree - sounds like an idyllic start:) Did you make lots of fig jam?
