Cottage Catch-up

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I am running short of time this morning so will make this a short post about the CCN Cottages - 

I don't think I ever got a snap of completed June up - so here is a snap of that - 


I think my favorite part of this cottage is the thatched roof.  As you can see I changed up this one a bit, but leaving off the floating flowers and I deleted the french knots from the strawberries - they looked nothing like seeds to me - I did stitch in some seeds with really small stitches, but you can not see them in the photo.

Here is an overall shot of the piece showing the little progress I have made with July...

That's about it for today sports fans!!  Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

Miss Pants said...

Are those lady bugs flying in the air? How cute!

Julie said...

June's cottage has really altered the look of this piece with the whitewash cottage.. looking superb.

Jennifer said...

Oh how pretty! I love your big piece together too.

Coming along very nicely....I never get french knots to look right...I usually change or leave out.

The changes look great as always just right. This is going to be another great project to add to you wall.

Margaret said...

So pretty! I love how all the roofs are different! Hadn't noticed that.

Jennifer said...

This is just beautiful. I really need to get needle in hand and makes some "x"s again. I just barely got over my craving for the 4 new Prairie Schoolers: August, January, Bunnies and 3 Billy Goat's Gruff. Then all of a sudden I see 4 NEWER ones up on-line. Where has the time gone...............

Laura said...

The thatched roof is great! I like the windows too. They look like they have sort of a stained glass effect. :)

Joy said...

They will be so nice when they're all finished. Do you have a spot on your wall saved for them yet? :)

Catherine said...

Looking great!

Parsley said...

Oh, Edgar! It's lovely! I think June and July will be my favs!

Nan said...

Love it! I originaly started stitching them individually and only finished January so I'm thinking you inspired me to rethink and stitch them together. It looks great!

Shirlee said...

It looks wonderful! You always make a stitched project look better than the model with your tweaks : )

DonnaTN said...

This is such a lovely project. The thatched roof has some great colors. I am partial to those ladybugs in the June block.

Barb said...

June looks great-one of my favorites!

Christine said...

That is gorgeous Edgar, I think it is my favourite so far. I don't know how she can call anything with three storeys a cottage mind you, but they look fabulous

Veronica said...

Your June Cottage is so pretty! I love strawberries. Great start on July too. Your entire piece is gonna be spectacular when finished.

Hugs,
Veronica.

Mel said...

They are just amazing Edgar!

And you make me feel bad that I only finished April a couple of weeks ago...
Congrats on keeping right in time with the months! That is a feat all it's own.

Carol said...

Your June cottage turned out great, Edgar! I had hoped to stitch that one myself for my June bowl of strawberry-themed pieces, but I just couldn't fit it in. Maybe next year :)

Susan said...

Looks great! The June cottage just screams "summer" to me.

MP said...

I am stitching these but not as one large piece...yours looks beautiful, makes me wish I did it this way.

Anne said...

Oooh! So gorgeous Edgar! I love these cottages and how you are putting them altogether!
