CCN January Cottage

I have just put the final stitches into the CCN January Cottage. I would have had it finished last night but stitching those snowflakes under electric light was proving a challenge – my eyes were stinging and I was having trouble getting my stitches in the right place! I decided that I was overdue for my bed and called it a night. They were much easier by daylight I have to say.

I'm really pleased with it – I love the turquoise shades. I'm looking forward to starting the Feb Cottage on 1st Feb – Carole and I have decided to start each month's cottage on the first of the month.

I'm going back to some applique now – I've a little bit left to do on this month's SKOW blocks.

    Beautiful work, Theresa.
    I love the top and bottom borders too.

  5. These really are cute! Tired eyes are not good for snowflakes – I’ll need to remember that. I had trouble with them a while back.

    That is soooooooo pretty (sorry if I haven’t visited for a while – Blogger has been a bit selective over which blogs I can access).
    I look forward to seeing the coming months as you complete them.
    Love your header.
