Quirky village commission

Here is a photo of a 'Quirky' village commission that I was asked to do by a lovely lady. She sent me some photos of her area so that I could get an overall picture, then designed it as her quirky village. There was a lot of machine stitching and painting involved, with some hand embroidery. The chimney brush coming out of the chimney is to remind her of her new fireplace! I received a lovely email to say she had got it and she was delighted with it.

 As she had a castle, pier, boats, bird island and lighthouse nearby they were all included.

                                                 Close up of the swans and island.
 
I will have to do one for myself.....eventually! In the meantime I'm making another quirky cushion cover and some more bunny rabbits. Will post next week sometime.
