The Summer House is built from 4 lined triangles attached to a square base. Pretty pink ribbons tie the sides
together. Vines dotted with blueberry beads climb the walls of the house and gardens
bloom on all sides.
A trellis of roses surrounds the front door. On one side of the house you will find a
fenced lavender garden with butterflies and bluebirds stitched over 1. On the other side, a
strawberry patch is humming with bees. In the backyard flowers spill from a very large urn
being inspected by two little visitors. Both the wreath over the front door and the large
urn are embellished with a tiny Swarovski dewdrop bead. Inside, pink felt walls surround a
fancy floral rug. Beneath the rug, another little mouse scurries around the base.
The felt walls can hold needles and pins or tiny embellishments.
Summer House is stitched with DMC on a single piece of 32 count Weeks Platinum Linen.
Miss Strawberry Mouse lives in this house. She is
wearing a strawberry frock with a white flower hat. She holds a gold strawberry. Her
curly tail is pink wired string. She fits inside the house.
Included with design: Color Cover, 12-page Stitch Guide, 24” of Ribbon, Pink Felt, Chipboard Base, Beads, 2 Swarovski Crystal Beads, Wired String Tail, Signature Button Mouse Base, White Flower, Gold Strawberry Bead, and a little Gingham Heart to decorate a wall. You'll need fabric, threads, fusible craft weight interfacing and a straight pin for the strawberry.

If you want an alternative to the Week's linen colors we have chosen the following alternatives:
Belfast Flax for the house as it's a warm brown/grey (you'll need a Stitcher's Eighth)
Lakeside Linens 32 count Honeysuckle as it's more of a peach than a pink and matches the felt in the kit much better (you'll need an ornament cut)
