Cottage Wally




Finally done. 1 more to go and that is the ornament wally.
I decided to add some embellishment on this one so it took me a few days longer.
I outline quilted little Christmas trees and on each corner tree I beaded it with gold, green and red beads.
On the top and bottom border I outline quilted some snowflakes ( Thanks to all my blog friends who suggested this) and then I put a snowflake bead in each center.
I am pleased but of course I learned a lesson on this one too.
Measure before cutting the final borders. One side is an inch longer. I had to fudge the rod.

Too cute! I can't wait to see the ornament wallie. Sometimes I measure twice and mine still is off or maybe I'm the one that is off.;)
