Cottage Garden Update

Here is the update as of last night:

Design: Cottage Garden

Designer: Nikki Lehman of Country Cottage Needleworks

Source: August 2006 Just Cross Stitch Magazine

Fabric: 28 count white Monaco

Fibers: DMC 153, 155, 156, 157. Weeks Dye Works thread in Pecan. Crescent Colours Joshua Tree, Tomatillio and Summer Spray.

(Progress picture removed from Webshots 12.01.2012 and no copy found in records)

I chose to change the colors of the wording, as I thought the original had too much green in it for my taste. "Cottage" was stitched in CC Summer Spray and "Garden" was stitched in CC Joshua Tree.

Here is what the original is supposed to look like:

Please post comments if you like or even hate the changes I've made. :)

Hope everyone is having a good day!


Respectfully submitted,
