Announcing Navarre Cottage - #485
Designed by Stephanie Seabrook Hedgepath
Second in the “Journeys with Jimanie” series, Navarre Cottage was discovered on a side trip after a dog judging assignment in Ohio. This time I was accompanied by my dear friend, Audrey Hiers, and we were heading for prime antiquing country when we were enticed to stop and photograph this lovely cottage on the outskirts of Navarre, Ohio. While I was taking photos of it, the front door opened, and out came the owner. She explained that the daughter of the man who had built the cottage had called as she wanted to come by and see the place. She thought perhaps I was that daughter when she saw me taking photos of it. We had a pleasant chat and I discovered that they had just returned from a vacation, of all places, on Seabrook Island (outside of Charleston, SC) an island named after my family and on whose beaches I had spent many a day in my childhood. I hope you enjoy stitching this sweet cottage as much as I enjoyed designing it for you.

Jimanie is the kennel name Stephanie uses for her show kennel of Pembroke Welsh Corgis. It is a combination of her name and the name of her husband, Jim. Since this series is going to include many places photographed on trips they have made together or on trips Stephanie has made for dog judging assignments, it seemed natural to name it “Journeys with Jimanie”.
