This is my latest cross stitch finish. It is the January cottage from Country Cottage designs. It is done on a 32 count belfast natural linen. It was easy to do, took about 5 days of actual stitching.

It is part of a series of cottage designs that will come out monthly. I am going to do all twelve and rotate them in and out of the same frame monthly. I have two other designs, one finished and one not, that are going to be grouped with this one. Finished is 4 birds, one for each season. The other 4 (just started) are alphabets done for each season. Both designs will be rotated seasonally.

Did a 16 mile bike ride with husband, Jerry, the other day.. It was on a walking, running and cycling path by a dry wash. A lot of straight stretches with some hilly places where the path goes underneath an overpass. It was a crispy cool day, great cylcling weather. I really enjoyed myself. Can not wait to go again. I am really enjoying riding!! I am quite a site in spandex. Maybe one day I will post a picture of that, but not today.

Keep well,
Yours in stitching,

  1. Hi Adria-

    Lovely finish! I've debating adding these monthly cottages to my stash. I love Country Cottage's designs in general, and I think they'd make a very cute project.

    Thanks for joining the WIPocalypse! I've just added you to the list. Happy new year and happy stitching!
