My February Cottage - Finished!

32 Count Lambswool Linen & called for Threads
After that I moved on to Elizabeth Hancock. Ahh, Elizabeth and I have had a rough go of it. In my last post I talked about my issued with the WDW Straw Linen. The piece that I got was so dark that for a little bit I actually thought I had the wrong color. I stitched on that piece a little while longer, but it was really bugging me. I just didn't think the beautiful colors were showing up well enough, so I headed up to my stash to see what else I had that was big enough. I ended up starting over on 35 Count R & R Sheep Straw Linen. I'm MUCH happier now. All this putzing around though cost me most of Sunday so I didn't get as far as I would have liked, but I'm liking the way it looks. Here is picture of my progress on that:
