Shepherd's Cottage Update

Slowly but surely, I'm making progress. This is what Shepherd's Cottage looked like last Sunday:
And this is what it looks like now, after several nights of stitching this week:

The house, including the smoke and the moon, is done, except for the flower beads that go on the little potted plants. I need to check my online source to see if I can order the right beads. If not, I might stitch some flowers. I'm really in the mood to finish this up.

The front gate and the bushes are complete. I love the little pop of pink that the flowers provide.

I love these stylized trees. They were so soothing to stitch. They are done in Weeks Dye Works Cypress and I just love the subtle shift of color. I still need to add beads to them as well.

As you can see, this little piece is stitching up nicely, and it would be a pretty quick project, too, if I could just work on it consistently. I hope to get the border done and add the little sheep this weekend.

What are your weekend sewing/stitching plans?

What a beautiful design. Can't wait to see it finished. I agree...the cypress is a perfect choice.
