Here is my second cottage in the Village Of My Heart. Ann put her name down on this one quite early on but I still have quite a lot of properties free if any of my dear cyber friends would like to put there name down for one. I also have a bank/po, a florist, a hair dresser/hat shop, a tea shop, a craft shop and a gift shop that need owners if anyone is interested.
At the stitching meet up last weekend I managed to acquire a book called The Village which I was thrilled with as the church on the front was a much better size than the one I had (mine was more like a cathedral than a village church lol). When I got home and looked at the book more closely I found it contained three shops which were far prettier than the original ones I had, so they were replaced too and I added a couple more to make up what I wanted.
I am now working on the landscaping for Ann's cottage and will stick with that for the rest of the weekend and try to get that completed before my holiday.
Not much else to report on the stitching front. I have completed the main part of my tissue box cover and keep picking it up and doing a little more of the blanket stitch which has had to be altered slightly as I made an error when stitching the outer kloister block, still that will just make it "personalized" lol. Once the blanket stitch is completed it is just a matter of cutting and wrapping the bars then it will be done.
I will try and post after the weekend with both an update of the village and also a map of my village as I have now managed to do a printable plan - mainly so I can keep track of who lives where.
Have a lovely weekend everyone and thank you once again to all those who take the time to visit my little corner of Bloggers World.
