I just had to!!

Seeing all those cottages in blogs all over, I just had to! they screamed at me...honestly they did!!
The CCN Monthly cottages January and February, not seen the March one for sale yet.

Not sure if you can see the white on white, but I couldn't wait to dye my fabric so I just started.

But I am not sure about the size as these are stitching up quite big, I am thinking 1/1 instead of 2/2.
I have left the needle in the top one so you can see how big it is.
I don't know as I wanted to stitch them on the same piece of fabric , I don't think it will be big enough, and my brain doesn't want to try and work it out yet, maybe in the morning!! lol

No colour as I haven't got all the colours, waiting for my delivery from Sew and so.

Are you stitching these? what count are you using?

I am also stitching for an exchange so I cannot share that yet,at least until the end of March !! eeek!!

I have started attending Zumba, so hopefully I can get rid of some more weight this year!
My foster cat is doing better now settling in a little, it is going to be hard when it is time to say bye !!
Thank you for stopping by!

Hugs Rachael xx

I love these but couldn't commit to the financial side of buying all 12! And I would HAVE to have all 12 as well.
Enjoying watching everyone else though.

Great start! I've loved the cottages so far but I'm wary of committing to them in case there is one later in the series I don't like. I tend to find I don't usually care for the July or November designs in monthly series from the USA. Cultural irrelevance I suppose

Heheheh, I'm glad you succumbed, as that means another set for me to drool over. :D It's looking great so far.

LOL! You caved ;o) I think it would be nice to stitch them separately and then pop them in and out of the same frame for each month.

Looking good, I resisted them. Busy trying to get on with Shores and not getting very far lol.

I started the Cottages 2/2 but am going to be restarting 1/1 all on one piece of fabric :)

Looking good so far!

I've resisted them so far! I like Pumpkin's idea of stitching them individually. I did that with some monthly L*Ks.

Lovely. I'm not stitching them yet. But I do plan on it sometime
