I had these fall and holiday cottage stitched pieces sitting on my "to finish" table for weeks before deciding to make them both basket-fronts. Well, that's a lie. I first decided to make the fall cottage a basket-front, fell in love with it, and decided to copy it for Christmas.
I also had these two larger-sized identical baskets that had been sitting in my inventory for quite a while just waiting for the perfect design and I'm really happy with my decision to use them for these two pieces. I love the look and feel of the cottage landscapes and I'm glad that it came together the way it did.
