March Cottage – a little green house

1 Comment

This is coming on really slowly this month as I haven’t been able to do much stitching. My shoulder has flared up quite badly again and for most of the last week all I was able to do was sit straight and read. Stitching was out of the question. It’s improved slightly over the last couple of days though and I’ve discovered that it’s a bit easier if I wedge a cushion under my arm while I stitch to support the shoulder. I’ve spent a couple of hours today finishing off the cottage part and it seems ok so far.

I seem to be getting into a routine of doing the cottage first, then the surrounding scenery and then the borders last. I like the cottage in this month’s design, especially the windows, and I’m rather looking forward to doing those sheep next.

This is what it looks like so far.

Part twelve of The Great Escape has just been posted and I haven’t done part eleven yet so I’m planning to do some of that tomorrow before continuing with this. It’s a different type of stitching, not so repetitive, so it’ll be less stressful on my shoulder. Also, I don’t want to get too far behind.

  1. oh it does look lovely – I start from the border and work down so I just arrived at the roof last night and have a few rows of that done. I’m loving all the green! Hope that shoulder is easing off a bit.
