Country Cottage Needleworks

Here is the ornament I did from the JCS magazine ornament issue. I am keeping it out on my dowel tree. I hope to fill this little tree up with other cute country smalls as a yearlong project.


Here is my Home of a Needleworker WIP. This is a pleasure to stitch! I am working it on 32 ct overdyed Zweigart linen using 1 strand of DMC over 2. This is a Little House Needleworks design-love everything she does!! AND, I have just discovered the works of her daughter, Country Cottage Needleworks, which are a little more shabby chic in design, I love them!! I did an ornament from this designer and I love it so much I'm keeping it out all year!

Finished first block of Days of Advent!

It took me a long time to finish this one because froggy came to town-several times!! But despite many annoying color changes in the bottom grassy part I finally finished this one. Now only 23 more blocks to go!!
