Embroidery update

Been just plugging along on this embroidery project. I've put myself on a technology fast, I'm trying to get away from spending the majority of my time with a screen. So as a result this little pattern has been coming along nicely. Maybe in another month or so it will be done. :)

New Project: Cottage of the Month

I couldn't help myself, I started a new project. It was too cute to resist. I saw a few of these cottages floating on Pinterest and thought they were too cute. And then I saw someone put all 12 onto one piece of fabric and I knew right then I would have to do it too.

I decided to start with the center cottages and work outward. I bought my fabric and two cottages (May & August) at After seeing some of the great personalizations others did, I plan on doing a few of my own as well. I want to include a little symbol for each person in our family for their birthday month, and then I plan on putting some wedding rings in our wedding anniversary month.

This one is going to take awhile and with 3 other embroidery projects going, I have a feeling it may take a whole year to get done. But I'm enjoying the process along the way.
