I have some real fun progress to share with you...
First up is my Downton Abbey finish...
|"Downton Abbey" by Cottage Nest Interiors|
I just love the way it turned out with the Fleur de lis fabric, and if you look closely at the front, you'll spot all of the household staff, including Mr. Bates and his wee cane.
I am beginning work on it's companion chart, "Downton Abbey Alphabet" by Cottage Nest Interiors, which will also be made into a pillow using the same fabric, and they will grace the couches in my family room while I wait patiently for Season 3 to arrive in the states...love!
If you would like to purchase either of these awesome charts, please visit Cottage Nest Interiors and enjoy a nice perusal of the many wonderful goods for sale.
My November Cottage...
I can't believe that there is only one more cottage in the series, have we actually gone through eleven already? I have really enjoyed this series of charts and can't wait to get December's chart to round out my year of pillows...all set for 2013...fun!
I have been working diligently on a real sweet treat for my Christmas exchange partner, but since it is a surprise I will defer showing it to you until it arrives at it's special recipient next month...wink, wink.
Each year, like many of you, I look forward to the variety of monthly series that come our way from the many talented designers that we all follow, and since I only chose one series a year it's not easy to pick which one to sign up for...but...after I took a peak at Country Cottage Needleworks "Santa's Village," I just couldn't resist because it is just so darn cute!
I would like to take a moment to ask for continued prayers for dear Dad, as he continues to make the slow and difficult recovery to healing and independence, and for Mom who remains the ray of sunshine in his life...I just love them both...and I thank you for your prayers.
Well, that's what's what at The Corner, as I head out the door on this chilly morning to prepare for Thanksgiving and the arrival home of one Little Brother, who will be with us for the entire week...yay! I send you off with hugs and wishes for a stress free week as you prepare for your own family feast, and I bid you stay safe and warm.
