A post about a place I’ve been, and the resulting Unfinished Project:
Avebury is a beautiful little village in Wiltshire, Southern England. Much of the village sits within a large stone henge that encompasses 28.5 acres. With an extensive bank and ditch, and numerous standing stones, it is a magical place.
Some of the remaining large sarsen stones. There were originally 98 of them. The diameter of the exterior stone circle at Avebury is larger than the one at Stonehenge.
Saxon Church of St. James in the village of Avebury.
Thatch roof house in Avebury. We lived in England for two years, and I think I have photographs of nearly every thatch roof house I saw! I love how they look!
This is the Cross Stitch kit I bought from National Trust. It will be a nice memory of Avebury, should I ever finish it…
The kit was prepared and is copyright to M. Yvonne Iley (M.Y.I. Designs) as an exclusive design for The National Trust in 2001. The contact address on the kit is for National Trust and is listed as: National Trust Enterprises Ltd, Stable Block, Heywood House, Westbury House, Westbury, Wiltshire, BA13 3XQ.
I purchased the kit in about 2001, so I don’t know if it is still available.
