About CrownStreetCottage

Sales 544
On Etsy since 2013

The wages of retirement is creativity!

Leave a retired baker/ cake decorator and Air Force spouse, who is also an empty nest mom in a house by herself for too long and you get either immaculate house keeping or chaos. I went the chaos route, but... out of chaos comes art!

I started toying with ideas for samplers (my favorite bit of embroidery fun) with pencil and graph paper, moving quickly into computer design programs discovering that I could happily spend the day designing and stitching! However, stitching samplers takes time and we at the cottage on Crown Street find that the "work" goes faster when interspersed with variety. So between the samplers there are now needle sketches which you can find in the Stitchery section of the shop.


I opened this etsy shop with the desire to share the fun, often geeky things that come out of my imagination.
