Cottage Etui

After a bit of a break from stitching I started the stitching on Cottage Etui for the class next month. First I tacked out the outline of all the pieces:

Then I started doing the four sided stitch - I thought I was stitching on the pincushion but then realised it was the roof. Never mind - it all needs doing. However, in my bid to be clever and fit it all in with the least wastage I put pieces right on the edge of the fabric - this leaves only the finishing area on the edge to attach to a frame, which isn't very much. So I don't know if I'm going to be able to get it onto a frame or if I'll have to stitch it - at least the edges - in hand.

Anyway - this is the start of the stitching:
