I've been cross stitching since I was a little girl, as both of my Grandmother's were passionate about it! I originally had this blog to enter some card making challenges and now intend to use it to keep track of my cross stitching stash and finishes.....

May Cottage and Flower of the Month

I can't believe this is my first post for May.  Where has this month gone??  I have been frantically stitching May cottage and it is finally finished.

I know I should have ironed it before I took the photo, but I was just so pleased to have it finally finished (I knew I should have started with June...)  What I have to decide now is how to finish it.  All along I had thought to frame it in the frames from the Family Tree Co, like they have illustrated in the picture that CCN uses to advertise the chart, but I cannot find a supplier anywhere!!!  So until then I'm just going to mull over a few ideas until I decide and start on June...

But that is going to have to wait until I finish my Flower of the Month SAL.  I'm skipping a month this month and stitching June 'Wild Rose' this month for my mum, so I have a tight deadline and have to have it ready for June 1st.   This is my progress so far:-

Just one more flower to complete and all the leaves, so hopefully I'll make it.  Okay, I have to finish it even if I stay up all night on 31st!!!!

Anyway, I hope all of your stitching is progressing well.  Looking forward to seeing all your progress.

Take care


  1. These Flowers of the MOnth are all so beautiful and I have admired them on various blogs. The rose will be gorgeous and a wonderful gift.

  2. The cottage looks lovely, very Spring like. Good idea to skip to June to make sure you finish on time.
