A small village 

Here is a small design that Canevas Folies has been offering for 10 years already in its catalog. It has not aged and is still welcomed.

Therefore I wanted to share it with all the readers of this blog.

In this post, you will find the pattern of this embroidery to download HERE as well as the list of colors used and the necessary explanations. The finished embroidery measures approximately 14cm / 10cm.

I would like to point out that this work is perfect for beginners …
