June’s Cottage – framed

6 Comments

June is finished and hanging which makes me half way done. I quite like the fabric I used for this one. I’m loving this range of designs in the Honey Bun. That was definitely one of my better ideas to get that. I’m looking forward to finishing the cottages so I can have a play with what’s left over too.

I’ve done a bit more to get the other six cottages ready. They’re all now backed with interfacing and the batting is cut to size. I’ve also cut all the backing pieces and selected which strips from the Honey Bun will be used with each one. The next half will go much faster than the first, I’m thinking πŸ™‚

This is what the first rail looks like with six hanging on it.

Looks like I’ll be needing to move that map of Vancouver and the menu from Ghirardelli soon.

  1. They look wonderful done like this – I bet your sewing machine thinks all its Christmases have come at once! Are they hanging in your craft room?

      Yes, the rails are on the wall right by my sewing machine so it can see how well it’s been performing πŸ˜‰
      I can’t wait to get the other six hanging on the second rail.
