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

  10. 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...............

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

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

  14. 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!

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

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

  18. 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

  20. 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.

  21. 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 :)

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