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!
