On to September Cottage! I made changes to the colors, here is the original floss toss below,
I didn't care for the almost peach color of the lighter red so I switched them out. Here is my floss toss below.
I went with School House Red (how could you not..hehe) and DMC 814 for the darker side of the schoolhouse, along with swapping the 3031 for 3371 which is a much darker brown for the blackbirds and the barrel ties etc. The biggest change I think will be the cottage itself in that the school house didn't look like a school house to me. Nothing against the original design, it's really cute, it's just I actually went to a little red school house in kindergarten in Missouri and I guess in my minds eye it looks better with the real little bell tower up there. So I charted up one and hopefully it will come out. I can't wait to get started on this and I am really excited to see October's cottage.
