The Village Post Office


Here is the second of my shops - The Village Post Office. This was just as much fun to stitch. I love the very slow process of stitching away, building up the whole picture, although on this one I seem to have covered up most of my knitting on the front.



On one side of the shop is a red pillarbox, while on the other is an old-fashioned red telephone box. The village postman has been rather careless, and left his bicycle and a couple of sacks of mail propped up at the back.


I still have one more knitted shop left to embroider. I would welcome any suggestions. I am considering a Sweet Shop - shelves of brightly coloured jars of sweets, or perhaps a Florist, or a Bakery ...... I may have to get knitting again.

  8. So intricate and beautiful - I love the bike left at the back, it's perfect. I think a sweet shop would be lovely too, with liquorice all sorts somewhere in the window?!

    Have a lovely crafty week,
