Problems fixed, where I'm at and where I'm going!

I've fixed the chimney and the roof ridge.  Best of all I've solved the problem with the path and fence to my liking....

Of course there will be roses on the arbor and the fence won't look quite so stark and rigid once the garden is completed.

..Where I'm going...  the cottage needs a door, molding, and shutters..  Then it is pretty much "let the french knots begin" with lots of foliage and flowers... This will be a great "tote along" block as french knots are pretty much mindless.

One thing I'd like to mention in case you are doing something with a wall or fence at the lower edge..  It's very awkward unless you allow a little foreground to give it depth...  That is why I have some garden extending outside the fence.

This piece has been in the UFO basket for at least 5 years... I'm so happy to have it moving ahead...


  1. This is coming along beautifully Gerry! Wishing you all the best this holiday season and in the upcoming new year. Do look forward to seeing more of your beautiful stitching.

  2. The path is such a huge improvement. It makes you want to follow and tour through the garden looking at the flowers. I also like the new roof ridge. Good work and Merry Christmas.

  3. Oh YES!! What a difference a new path and a new fence make! I'm absolutely loving this block.
