As promised, here is the winter cottage so far:
I'm enjoying stitching this so much more without all the metallic braids.  I wanted a nice picture to hang at Christmas time and this fits the bill perfectly.
Now for what I received from a sweet lady named Vicky.  I sent her some pink fabrics to add to her  pink charm quilt and she sent me a sweet, sweet bookmark that I'm using to hold my different size needles.
 On one side she has my initial stitched and on this side she did a picture of my baby, Vallie.  Thank you so much Vicky....I love your stitching and choice of colors.  
That's about it for this week.  Went crib shopping with John and Peyton today.  They found one they like so we'll be getting that for them closer to the birth.  She will be finding out soon if it's a boy or girl and then I can get started on some things for her.  Until then, I'm cross stitching and working on the knitted blanket for the baby.
Blessings, Barbara

What a sweet cottage.
I am so very glad you love your bookmark. I knew the stitched Vallie would be a hit with you! ;)
Have fun preparing for baby!
