April Cottage

Another month, another cottage - and now it's time for April! This one is a very springtime cottage with it's lavender house, flowers and bluebirds. And don't forget the little bunny who has his eye on those carrots! For this pattern you'll need DMC threads along with Crescent Colours' Amethyst, Sampler Threads' Chives and Weeks' Artichoke.

On Wednesday I will be posting the picture of my other new design Party Cakes, so be sure to check back here in a couple of days to see that one as well!

  2. I've been buying the monthly cottage patterns, but hadn't seen that April is for sale yet.

    I love this one! So springy. I'm going to 123 Stitch right now to see if it's available!

  3. Darn, not yet.

    I wanted to ask you where you bought the frame for the monthly cottages. I love it and would like to purchase the same one for when my cottages get stitched up.

    Thanks! Looking forward to the rest of the series.

  4. So just to clarify, this is the first release of the "April Cottage" picture, but the patterns won't arrive in shops until later this month/early next month.

    Also, Chelle - I am using different frames for each of the cottages but they are all made by The Family Tree by Crescent Colours. The information for each is on the pattern. You can contact your shop to ask about ordering any of them.

  5. Thank you, Nikki. I will check one of the patterns I have. Will you display all of your cottages in your house at the same time? I was going to put one up each month, just like flipping the calendar page.

    I need a frame for a breast cancer piece I just finished and am looking for something square. Maybe they will have what I need for that also.

    Thanks, Nikki!

  8. It turned out so great!!! Makes me smile!!!! I love these designs and cannot say enough good things about all of them. They aren't difficult to change colors on them for any of the months if a stitcher wants to personalize them too! Great job!!!

  14. I really love all of these. Would it be possible to also post what DMC is needed? I am running to AC Moore with a gift certificate this weekend and was hoping to get the DMC and be ready when it comes! Thanks.
