CCN June/July Cottage

I've finally put the last stitches into my current cottage. I've switched this around from June to July as I used the red/white/blue July cottage for my June Jubilee spot. It was a bit tricky with the lettering but I think it's turned out ok.

Not a brilliant picture as it's too dark to take a nice photo so I used the scanner – quite a job with this size of fabric. I can't say that I love this cottage but I do like the strawberries and the overdyed thread colours are gorgeous again – doesn't really show up properly but they are beautiful in real life.

Moving straight along to the August cottage now :) 

As a quick aside – my quilts have returned from their trip to be quilted and I can't tell you how wonderful the quilting is, absolutely stunning. I'll show some pics once I've got the binding stitched in place.

    It looks smashing. You just squeezed the lettering in nicely.
    Lovely strawberries and ladybirds too. They’re my favourite bits of that design 🙂
