There's just something about summertime, isn't there?
Those first days when its really warm and you can smell freshly cut grass. Bees are buzzing around and things are growing like a weed. The fruit stand is open for business and the sun is shining and all's right with the world.
Well this new design is my tribute to all those good "summer" things. Classic red, white and blue colors on a summer sky linen color.
The great thing about this design is how adaptable it is to your stitching mood. You can stitch it just like you see it. Or just stitch one of the squares for a quick finish. Leave off the word "summer" or keep it. You can customize it so many ways!
I did a simple frameless finish with a casual ric rac hanger. Perfect for hanging on a peg rack next to your beach bag or the dog's leash. No fuss.

I'm Robin, the designer behind October House. You've found my blog, where I ramble on about stitching and sewing and anything else that catches my fancy!
I love quiet colors, gentle stitches and making things by hand.
