A FINISH!!! And a WIP!


 Well, here it is.  My first cottage, finished!!  I am way behind, but that's okay.  I am just psyched that I did it.  This is my favorite so far.  As you can see I am leaving out the month names, I just didn't want them.  I am moving the top down about 8 stitches and improvising with the various elements already in the designs.  I am over half way finished with February and am making the flowers on the sides a bit shorter to make it work better.  I really like this too, I'm just not sure about my color choice of green.  It's a bit darker than the original, but it will have to work because I am not frogging it.  As you can see I have March in my queue.  I will be doing a floss toss for this one soon.  



Thanks for stopping by, hope everyone is well,
Hillery

Very pretty, Hillery! It's so neat to see on the different blogs how each stitcher "visualizes" each month.

Hope your B-I-L is doing well and getting stronger everyday :^)
