October Cottage Progress

Here are some progress pics of the October Cottage with the color changes I've made so far. I really love the purple house, it just makes me happy. The oranges in the pumpkin have been swapped out for WDW Autumn Leaves which is a bit more of a vivid orange. I have a ways to go, been busy this week so stitching has fallen off but I plan on trying to finish this by the end of the weekend. Pardon the big cat hair on the house, I lint roller before pics but I must have missed this one. Thanks He's cute though.

 So is Sage our other cat. They are my company while I stitch.

October Cottage Floss Toss

 Here is the specified floss toss for the original colors. I wanted to go with more Halloween colors, which is funny because I'm not all that into Halloween. I LOVE Autumn but Halloween not so much. I thought with the oranges brightened up and some purples added along with some planned border changes it'd be more festive. The house is in Weeks Purple Rain, and Weeks Merlin for the darker side. I kept the Weeks Scuppernog but I'm not sure if I'm keeping the Weeks Carrot color for the pumpkins or going with Crescent Colors Lobster Claw or Weeks Autumn Leaves. I'm still playing around and seeing what will work and what won't. I also added Weeks Mascara for the blackbird. I've started the Cottage and now just need to work out the details. More to come!

September Cottage Finish..finally

 I finally got September finished after way too long. I have to admit that online games are fun but they take up too much time. I officially gave up Chefville cold turkey and got back to stitching. I'm so happy I did. I think this came out way cute and I'm excited about starting October Cottage tomorrow. I'm about a month behind my stitching schedule so I am hoping to whip through October as quick as I can.
