This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled Old Cottages Near Downton, Wiltshire shows a very large old English cottage with a thatched roof. Smoke is bellowing out of the chimney and we can surmise the cottage is very cozy and warm. There is an overgrowth of shrubs and an abundance of plants and flowers growing all around the cottage, and a woman who inhabits the cottage is posing outside with her young child perhaps to get some fresh air. Lovely setting. No blended colors are used in our patterns. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect. Only full cross stitches are used in our designs.
