Comments: Over the years we have travelled all over Europe, and in this particular instance we were somewhere in England  when I spotted a little shop where they had needlework in their window display, so we went inside and I saw this design and it looked so charming added to the fact that I love European architecture, I decided that I had to purchase it.The Shambles York came as a kit with canvas and wools. The finished size is 6" by 9 1/4".

We had it finished with a very simple frame and I really like the way it looks.
