Log Cabin Home

Log Cabin Home!
EDITED: to add a picture of the actual cabin that we stayed in! See the similarities?!!?

As some of you know, my husband & I love a place in Millersburg Ohio called Tranquil Acres. They have 3 log cabins that they rent out to visitors. We have stayed in the one called Shady Maple. We truly love to go over there & I decided I wanted to stitch a log cabin for the owners. They are such sweet & caring people.
the cabin we stayed in!
I searched & searched for a pattern that I thought would work well.
The one I found is by Funk & Weber Designs & is called Twilight Treasures. I edited it to suit what I wanted to stitch. I stitched it on a remnant piece of fabric that I got at House Of Stitches in LaPorte IN the last time I was there. It is jobelan & is called Denim Blue. I left the tag on it, so you can see it!!! The remnant was on sale for 1/2 price, so you see, I got this piece of fabric very cheap!!!!
I used all of the called for flosses, except for the brown. For some reason, I didn't have that DMC color or it was kitted with another project. So, I went to my supply of Victorian Motto Sampler flosses & chose a brown I thought looked good.
I think I am going to make this into a small pillow, but I haven't decided yet. It is going to be very hard to give this away....I really love how it turned out!
have a great week & thanks for visiting my blog!

That is such a thoughtful and kind gift, Shari! I know the owners will love your gift--I bet they'll hang it right in "your" cabin and you can see it each year when you visit :)
