The summer after I graduated from college, I spent a couple months backpacking around Europe by myself.  It was an amazing experience, but at times it was scary and intimidating to be alone in these big cities where I didn't speak the language.  The last place I visited before heading back to London to catch the plane home was Amsterdam, and I fell in love with the city.  It was so welcoming and beautiful, and the people were so nice and helpful, I almost stopped being homesick!  I haven't been back to Amsterdam since, but I knew I wanted to pay tribute to it with a Pretty Little City pattern.

Amsterdam has been one of my most requested cities, so I know I'm not the only one who has a special affection for this lovely place.  I hope I get to go back someday, but in the meantime I can look at my cross stitch and remember the wonderful memories I made there.

Pretty Little Amsterdam, available in the shop now!

  1. Oh I love it even though I've never been there. I have bought all of your pretty little city designs and am ordering this one. I would love to see one for Los Angels, CA, San Diego, CA and Houston, TX. I know you did one for Disneyland, but I think it would be awesome to have one of Disney with things that I could recognize.
