January Cottage


Well, now look what you've done.  It's a classic case of, everyone else is doing it, so why shouldn't I?  I have broken down and ordered January and February Cottages from Country Cottage Needleworks, and have had a nice start these past few days on January.  Now, I'm not too sure about actually stitching the month names, I might figure out a way to omit the names on these charts.  I'd like to lower the top border a bit and perhaps add a couple extra motifs to each chart.  Who knows if I'll get done a whole year, but this is proving to be a fun and quick stitch.  Hope to have it finished for next post. I think I'll have to e-mail Vonna and get on the Cottages SAL blog as well,
Thanks for stopping by,
Hillery

I can't wait to see how it progresses and what you decide.
