CCN ~ March Cottage

I just finished stitching this March cottage this past weekend. These stitch up SO fast. I used moss marbled aida for this one and I left a light on in the right upstairs window. Perhaps someone is stitching up there or reading. :)

CCN ~ February Cottage ~ Finish

Here is the frame I ordered for the Country Cottages by CCN. I plan on stitching the monthly cottages and slipping the stitched piece in the back monthly! I just LOVE the way it turned out!

Remember...this is the fabric I dyed with cherry kool-aid and I flipped the hearts on the bottom border.

Just a simple heart, stitched on Aida and then cut out close and attached with glue dots!

February Cottage

Just finished putting the last of the stitches in on Country Cottage Needleworks ~ February Cottage! I dyed this white Aida 14 count fabric with cherry kool-aid and am tickled 'pink' with the great results. So much in fact, that I am going to try dying another piece with lemonade flavor for the April cottage chart hitting LNS's at the end of the month.

True Love !

I stitched this one up just today...! A real quick stitch.
Sam Sarah Designs ~ Pearls True Love. Used perforated paper and will attach a ribbon flower instead of the button and use in a paperweight. I'll post pictures as soon as I have it together.

LHN ~ Winter Sheep. I stitched this on 14 count Fiddler's with DMC thread. Changed the red border to DMC #930. Changed the cardinal button to a stitched blue bird, added pearl metallic to the snow and snowflakes, changed the words to DMC #680, changed the star from gold to red. I'm happy with the changes!
