A Little Cottage.

Here are the walls;

Here are the windows;

Here is a little house;

Looks like Swirly was right! I have knitted a tiny wee cottage tea cosy for my mother-in-law. Am really pleased with it. I had to buy a teapot for her as I measured her everyday pot when we visited at the weekend and the walls I had already knitted were too small! Note to self; measure pot before starting project next time.
I have put the pot in it's cosy and put it in a straw basket, the tag simply says; "A little cottage for your little cottage" Hope she likes it.

Here it is with her other present and a cake that Francesca and I have made for later. Francesca complained that there was only one candle but I fear it may be a fire hazard if she had one for every year (she is 21 after all!).

I made her card with a peel off stained glass window circle that I have coloured over acetate and then mounted on torn handmade paper square. I would show you but it's in the oven drying, ran out of time as usual!!

Spaghetti bolognaise is awaiting her arrival. Good food, cake, hand crafted presents, am I the best daughter-in-law in the world or what?!
