I did change many things about these cottages but the spirit of them is definitely still there. The biggest change of course being making July into a Canada Day celebration instead of Fourth of July festivities. I'm lucky that Canada celebrates our 'independance day' only 3 days before the US.The Kreniek that is in the sky of each cottage was also added by me. And then some other color changes and things.
So without due, on Lambswool Linen from Lakeside Linens, 40ct, 1 over 2 threads. Here is the cottage of the month series from Country Cottages (click on photo to see larger):
I have no idea what I'm going to do with this piece as it doesn't work in our home at all. It may become a donation item to a charity auction in the fall. I have done this with two pieces in the past (get them framed and then donate) and they both made some good money (a few hundred dollars each) for the respective charity. Unless another idea or thought comes to mind. Or as with many other finishes it might just collect dust in my "finishes" box.
So with Cottages out of the way I went on a hunt for a project I put aside to work on them.
Counting Bats by Just Nan. I had one of the 8 sections completed when I stopped. And I really do want to finish this, if only because I bought the entire silk set for it (which was crazy expensive) so I feel like I should finish it. I'm hoping it doesn't take too long so I can move onto a new start soon too! Photos of progress coming in the next couple weeks.
Progress on Dragons is a bit slow but happening. To date I have been working on Dragons mostly on weekend time so it gives me a 'set' time to dedicate to them.
