Almost Finished the Rose Cottage Pillow top

Here are the pictures from the website of the Sarah Twigg's Reproduction samplers. I have finished the second one and part of the first one. I plan to finish the first one to make a complete set and frame them in the next month. These pictures are actually from the website and the actual linen for mine are an aged yellowish color instead. Designs are the same. This is one of the first projects I have used with silk floss instead of cotton and its wonderful to work with.

This is my progress on the Country Cottage Needleworks, "Rose Cottage" pillow topper. I can't wait to finish it but I have to sleep a few hours each day :)

I started this on Thanksgiving and hope to finish it this week. I love the names of the cotton floss. One of the rose colors is "Secondhand Rose" and the roof is "Country Lane".I have 2 more edges to complete. Then back to sampler #2 of "the Twiggs Sampler" which are two reproduction needlework samplers above.


  1. That is really pretty. I'm going to stitch the new one by Country Cottage Needleworks when it gets here the 1st of the month. It's called Pretty In Pink. I don't think I can post a picture on your blog. But you can see it @ www.DogwoodPatch.com. Arrow down until you see Pretty in Pink then click on it.

  2. I can't wait to check it out!! I love the CCN and the Little House Needleworks and I really really want the patriotic one, the larger one. May have to stitch that in 2009.
