Update on Sampler
Ten months ago, I added my version of our little home we live in. Here's a photo of the house when I first stitched it:
This past week I added elements around the house. As you will be able to see, our yard doesn't actually include all of these cute elements, but it's fun to pretend, isn't it? We live in the middle of a large city, so we don't have sheep in our yard, nor do we have a duck swimming in a pond. Haven't seen any rabbits around here, either.
I have thought of adding half stitches for the grass, but just can't do it yet. I'm not sure that it needs the half stitches anyway. Here it is:
I finished the garden around the Tudor style home.
I took some of the garden elements from this piece that I stitched years ago. I did vary the colors and more to fit the area.
Finally, a view of the whole piece as it looks now. You can get a better view by clicking on it, and viewing it on Flickr:
Now I need to figure out what to add to some blank areas. I think it's becoming more of a 'spot motif' sampler than a House and Garden one, but that's okay with me. It's really been fun working on the sampler, and watching it come together bit by bit.
Thanks for stopping by today!
