Adding A Pattern of Our House
I didn't finish the previous house in the top right corner before going onto the next house. Here's that house now, and as you can see I've almost finished it!
I just need to do a bit of backstitching, and finish the tree.
I decided to do as I originally planned, and I'm adding my own 'rough' rendition of our house. Here's my little drawing of our home:
Keep in mind that it's just a semi-accurate portrayal of our home!
Finally, here's what I've stitched so far on the sampler view of our own home. I have decided to make the tree much smaller than it actually is. I've also left out the detached garage.
A close-up of the newest house: (One can barely see the white gate to the left of the house, and only a bit of gray stucco shows from under that large tree. The black represents our house's shutters.)
I have also been looking around the internet a lot lately at other similar samplers. There are so many beautiful ones out there! I will be adding a lot more elements to this sampler as at this point it is rather plain and a bit lackluster.
I would like you to look at a photo my husband took of the sky the other night. It was so beautiful outside, and the full moon shone so brightly. I love it when the moon is full.
Last of all, I want to share a photo of a sunset that was taken from our backyard. I played a bit with the colors on a photo program, so it's more intense than it actually was when it was taken:
This morning before I went to work I got a photo of a new bird in our backyard, but that will have to wait for another day.
Thanks so much for reading my blog, and thanks for your comments. Your words mean a lot to me!
