Monthly Cottages...

have you seen this?

Let me tell you when I read over at Country Cottage Needleworks , that Nikki was designing a monthly Cottage starting December 2011, and then I saw how cute the first installment was...well, sign me up buster!

I love, love, love houses. I don't know why, maybe its because I'm built like one, but enjoy them I sure do. Throw in key phrases like *seasons* and *series*....well that pushes some mental buttons for me. I automatically start thinking....thinking....thinking.... then I start, well obsessing. I. have. to. do. it.

So...here's the deal. I'm going to start a Stitch-A-Long Blog. These will all be 75 x 75 inches and I've got dimensions all figured out for if you stitch them as singles or as one big piece. Care to think what I'm doing? Ha. Ha. Ha.

Anyway, if you'd like to sign yourself up for a pressure free, no holds barred Stitch-A-Long of these cutie patootie monthly cottages, send me an e-mail (located by the mailbox in the sidebar) with your name and e-mail that you wish to join the blog with so that you can become an author to share your Monthly Cottage Finishes. You can see what I have set up so far, over here at: The Cottages Stitch~A~Long Place. Don't delay only 100 authors allowed and I'm already down to just 99 spots left!  :)

Go crazy right along with me and join today!

  2. Those are cute and I'd sign up, but I'm still staring at the PS Alphabets that I haven't worked on in forever. So I'll just have to watch you as you work on them. They're very cute.

  4. They are cute, but I've still got most of the Monthly ornaments to do, so will have to pass.

  5. It would be fun if I were a more experienced stitcher, which I would have been had I not put it on the back burner for so long...
    Have fun, I look forward to watching your progress!

  9. I just signed up for the SAL. Yikes.

    I guess you mean that each design is 75 by 75 stitches.
    Do you know if all twelve will have the same top and bottom borders? Thanks.

  18. I'm totally hooked on this series! I want to stitch them all nd will buy them all but I know they probably won't bedone in the coming year. I've already committed to too many other things. That won't stop me from watching all of you and drooling over them!

  23. I'm kind of tempted, but like a lot of people I have lots of other things to stitch. But there is still time to give in to temptation.

  24. Wow - that is a cutie indeed! I love houses too and who can say no to auqa colors!? Not me - too adorable!
    Have fun with the SAL - I have a feeling that it'll fill up in no time at all! :-)

  25. I love this Vonna! It's so perfect and adorable! It's now on my list of things to stitch, which is growing very long LOL!

  26. Oh that's cute!! I'm a sucker for a cute house.

  28. It's a cutie Vonna, but I will bench this one. I'll come visit to see the progress on them.

    Thank you for your prayers.

  29. I would love to participate in the SAL, but I'm afraid that if I sign up, I'm taking away a spot from someone who will actually stitch them - it's been so long since I stitched something that I probably shouldn't commit to anything right now!

    I'm like you - I love houses! I think it was because I didn't have my own house for so long that I was compensating by stitching them :)

    Have a wonderful weekend!
