Who would have thought building a little cottage would be so time consuming!! I have spent all afternoon on my little construction.... the lacing of the sides around the plastic canvas took the longest. I have just finished stitching all the sides together and I have had enough for today! I am very pleased with the results, I don't think I have ever stitched any thing like this, but it is turning out ok. I have to finish stitching the roof next, then I can attach that. The base is just red felt (again laced around the plastic canvas) and then I have to attach the long bugle beads at the sides and a hanger on the top!
Here are the 2 side views -
I realised on Wednesday night though that I had made a big mistake on it.... and I blame the poor light at my house. The green back stitch lines were actually dark blue on the chart... which stood for the silver not the green.... so it should be more sparkly than it is... but I like it any way!
Otherwise I have been working on Henry still, he now has a complete head and half a hat!! Mind you I think his head looks tiny in comparison to his body, but it probably was - he was a big chap!!
I am working on his right shoulder now and aim to work towards stitching some of a wife for him next!!!!
No pictures until Sunday/Monday of him I'm afraid.... you'll just have to wait.
It is very cold here today, I went into town with mom this morning and we caught the bus!! I was frozen when I got home. Managed to get some wrapping paper and cards so can get some presents wrapped soon and start on my Christmas card writing next week!
Stuart brought a bread maker with some of his birthday money and he is cooking his first loaf now.... urm it smells nice, good job it is nearly dinner time as the smell is making me very hungry.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.Ginnie x
