Well.....I just noticed I had not posted my Country Cottage Needleworks "April" cottage....I got so excited and posted it on the CCN Cottages blog, but not on my personal blog... So, here you go....
Of course, I had to put a little different spin on things and tone that purple down a tad...
Here are the color conversion I used...not that the original colors weren't lovely, just a little bright for my taste....so, here is my toned down version....
420 Crescent Colors-Brown Sugar
422 GAST-Caramel Corn
553 CC- Purple As
722 GAST- Melon Patch
3021 DMC 3021 (no thread change)
3840 GAST- Dunagarees
C/C Amethyst GAST- Moonlit Path
GAST Chives GAST- Dried Thyme
Weeks Artichoke Weeks- Gucamole
These are just choices I made since I had them on hand and the color palette was softer.... I also altered the roof and made it a little "thatch" roof by incorporating small satin stitches...I am choosing to frame my months in a small frame where I can pop out each month....
Hope everyone is enjoying this series of designs as much as I am!!!
As for this week and most of today....I have been....well, you get the idea~~~

Hope everyone has a fantastic rest of their weekend!
