It’s taking a bit longer than I hoped to do this month’s cottage. I’ve been trying to do most of it while watching TV, but my rate of stitching slows down to a crawl as I just don’t have the ability to concentrate on both at the same time.
I’ve just done a bit more with no TV on and no distractions and it went much faster. Obviously that’s the way to go but usually the only time I get to do that is when it’s late and I’m tired. Not the best time for stitching. Sigh.
So, I’ll just plod on and accept that I’m a slow, slow stitcher.
I do like this month’s cottage. It’s very pretty with the two variegated pinks. I love the way they blend into each other in the window frame and walls. I have one more pair of flower stems and hearts to do and then I can do the text and the borders. Hopefully the borders won’t send me quite so cross-eyed as January’s did.
I’m not sure about the randomly scattered hearts around the text in this one. I may not do them as I have a vague idea of something else to do instead. I need to think about it a bit first. I may just be a complete wimp though and follow the design as it is…
