The last one, all framed and finished.
I found a lovely fabric for it. It’s green, with red in it, and it also has blue. Ok, so there’s no blue in the stitching, but the greens have a bluey tint to them so I think it goes quite nicely. It’s from the same Honey Bun as all the rest were.
I am so happy to have finally finished these. I had no idea it was going to take so long to get done. It’s not that it was a time-consuming process. It’s more that I have so many other things that I want to be doing and it was taking time away from them. Doing four or five would have been fine but twelve was definitely pushing it.
Having said that, I’m chuffed to bits with how they all look on the rails. It may have taken almost a year to do, but it was worth the effort.
I have lots of the Sandhill Plums fabric left so I’m planning on using it for other things now that I know which colours I won’t need for the Cottages. I’m using some for a cushion . At least, I hope it’ll be a cushion. I have to get a zip in it yet.

Hi Carole, Helen from the SAL has lots of cross stitch projects to finish and I’ve linked to this page because I never forgot how you finished your cottages. I still love them. Avis x

Avis told me about your blog so I thought I would drop by. I think the cottages are lovely, and the display set up is brilliant. I’ve found your blog very interesting. Will certainly be back. 🙂

They are absolutely beautiful and well worth the effort of finishing them up like this. I would stand and look at them for ages if they were in my house. FABULOUS! Avis x
