December Cottage Finish

Here it is and the last Monthly Cottage in the series. I am so happy to have them all done but I will miss them. I loved the color changes and little design changes to personalize them. December didn't have much in way of color changes, only some sparkle added. A few small design changes like leaving out the bird and yellow dots in the white border flowers and adding candles, a tree with icicles in the windows and a few icicles on the roof. While I wait for Frosty Forest to start I am going to work on another UFO and possibly do a small autumn stitch. More to come soon!

December Cottage Floss Toss plus!

So much good stuff I can't stand it! First the December Cottage floss toss which compared to last month,  this one I am not changing anything. I will be adding some sparkle to the snow with both blending filaments and Kreinik #4 in 032 white pearl.

I have also picked up a UFO from last year and will finish this up. Its Ink Circles Love Letters Art Nouveau sampler. Its coming along well and fast, a few more details in the frame and then the letters and it will be a hands down happy dance. The other great news is Country Cottage Needleworks has a new series starting mid November called Frosty Forest. I will set up on an auto ship to get started as soon as the charts come out and I am really excited! (Can you tell?
