Frosty Forest start

For what will probably be the only time during the release of these nine designs, I am caught up! This is the newest multi-part design from Country Cottage Needleworks, and today I finished up Raccoon Cabin:

Here's a close-up of the cute little raccoon:

I did change several of the floss colors, so mine looks a bit different than the chart picture. I hope I can keep up with this one; there are 12 parts to Santa's Village, and I've only completed the first one!

I wanted to mention a giveaway being held on Missy's blog. I have bought several pairs of hard-to-find Gingher scissors from Missy; now she's giving away a pair of Cheetahs, which I don't have yet. Fingers crossed I can win a pair!

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!


  1. Congrats on the great finish Melanie. I haven't received my chart yet. I am looking forward to stitching this set.


  2. Lovely finish Melanie. I'm still waiting for mine too...

  3. It's too cute.
    I'm awaiting mine too, can't wait to start it.
    What fabric are you using?
    I'm thinking of a bluish color.

    1. Marilyn, it's Silkweaver Karma on Belfast; this piece is a blend of soft gray, purple and green.

  4. Looks great! I am waiting for the first pattern to come to me. I want to stitch this whole series. I have a piece of gray opalescent linen that I want to do the whole series on. I also wanted to do Santa's Village, but that never happened. I vow to do this one!

  5. Looks beautiful! I just started mine Friday and haven't had much time to work on it. I'm hoping for some quiet time tonight!
