I can't make up my mind!

There are so many cute house patterns out there, I just can't limit myself to one. I'm trying to find one that looks almost log-cabinish, because my sis and hubby are outdoor types, hunting, fishing, skiing. Maybe one that looks like a lodge?

This is the only part I hate about stitching, is trying to narrow things down!

I know how you feel! Sometimes it can get overwhelming trying to decide what to stitch.

What about modifiying a house pattern you already have and making it look more like a cabin by stitching it in a brown shade, then outlining the "logs" with backstitching?

If you go to Little House Needleworks under their Woodland Samplers...they have Prairie Sampler, Lakeside Lodge and Starlight Sampler that all have really nice log cabin houses...here is a link to them; http://www.littlehouseneedleworks.com/woodland.html

Happy Stitching,

Prairie Schooler has one called Cabin Pinekeep in the Just Cross-Stitch Magazine 2002 Ornament Issue. It's really cute and looks like it would fairly quick and simple. If you don't have this magazine, you can order back issues at their website: http://www.just-crossstitch.com or check on e-bay.
