Well my little grey cottage is finished and I am so glad I didn't use the metallic braid it called for.  There are tons of beads on here and the only metallic I used was the white for the snow and the snow on the roof and that's plenty.  I did it on a pewter 25ct Lugana and I like how it turned out but now I wish I had used a higher count so it would of been smaller.  I'm still pleased with it and it will make a great Christmas decoration when framed.

This one is going to be my next project.  It's called "The Three Spinners" by The Little Stitcher.  I started it once before but didn't like the fabric I was using so I'm starting it again on a hand dyed 32ct.

 I love this designer....she has some very original designs and if you like primitives, you might want to check her out.  I get her designs at Stitch & Frog if you're interested in seeing other designs of hers.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.  We did yardwork last weekend so this one I can relax and do some stitching and sewing.

Blessings, Barbara
