Fair & Square & Cottage Trio

Terry has eventually received the squares I sent her in the Fair and Square Exchange. I was becoming somewhat concerned as it seemed to be taking longer than normal for it to travel from the U.K. to the States. Anyway I can now show you what I stitched and the extras that I sent. As always click on the photos for a better view.


Martina's Roses - Free Design from Chatelaine which can be found here.

Fabric M.C.G. Textiles 32ct linen in Oyster.

DMC threads and Mill Hill beads as given.



Last week I finished the Peony Cottage, which completes my trio of cottages from Country Cottage Needlework/Crescent Colours.

Just a short post today as it has taken me ages to get this far. I don't know if it's me or Blogger, but one of us is not functioning too well! Thanks for all your lovely comments about the bluebells. And to any new readers, please don't be shy, do leave a comment.
