My August Cottage

I realized this morning, that I simply forgot to post a picture of my CCN "August Cottage" finish...





Don't ya just love that fabric? It's so much fun and goes so well with the August Cottage floss colors, if I do say so myself.

I stitched this sweetie on 28ct Tea Dyed Monaco (of course) using the designated DMC and GAST "Morning Glory" and "Shutter Green." I did, however, change one small detail in the upper outer flowers from blue to yellow, and I like it better as there was such a lot of blue that the two yellow flowers just broke it up for me.

Hoping that you are enjoying the final few weeks of summer, dear friend, by your own sweet cottage with a glass of lemonade, and a stitch or two for good measure.

Hugs
