Proudly presenting...

...Jan cottage!!!
I just love the colors and each stitch, the fabric...just everything about this. It was great fun. i have never ever done a french knot earlier. Initially, when I found that this required french knots, I had more than half a mind to put in small beads. But last night, when I had done everything but the eyes and the buttons, I thought of checking out youtube to see if there's a video on how to put in a french knot. And of course there was!! Isn't that sit awesome!!?! Finally after viewing many many videos, I thought why not and went in for the french knot. And I love the way it turned out.
I did have a few incorrect stitches initially. If you notice the snowman closely, his left eye is closer to the right than it should be, hehe. Does not matter, he's cross-eyed ;)
I have enough time, well about a year actually, to figure out how to finish this up :d:d. I would love to make these beauties into a calendar.
Now to start Feb. I have the fabric and threads layed out, all set to start.

Yayay, am totally excited I have a finish so soon into a year thanks to Vonna. So, my dear friends till my next update.. Take care.. Be happy.. Keep stitching.. Au Revoir

Congrats on your finish. It's adorable! Snowmen aren't perfect so it's okay if his eyes are a little "off". :)
