Cottage of the Month - January Cottage

I have something that I'm very excited to share with you all today! I have a new series of patterns that I am going to be releasing starting this month. The series is called Cottage of the Month, and it is a 12 month long series featuring 12 different cottages all inspired by the months of the year.

The designs will all be the same size and will feature a mix of DMC and overdyed threads. There are many finishing possibilities with these, but if you do choose to use a frame, you can easily pop them in and out to change with the months, since they will all be the same size.

The designs will all be about 5 1/2" square when stitched on 28 count fabric. They are a perfect size to finish with enough time to have them ready for the coming month. This first cottage is of course January, and since it will be available in shops near the end of this month or the beginning of next month you will have time to get it all stitched up by January.

I hope that you all will enjoy stitching this series as much as I have enjoyed designing it, and be sure to check back here on Monday for a picture of our newest holiday design, Vintage Christmas.

  15. I read about the SAL and love these cottages. But I must ask, how much will each chart be and will they be available either as PDFs or in the UK?

    My email is in my profile, thanks so much for designing such lovely houses, I hope I can join in!
