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 123Stitch.com.
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.
