It has taken a full month, but the left side of the manor is now complete!
The last 4-5 stitches on the right side of the front door are actually on the next page, but I wanted to be able to do the backstitching on the whole door, so finished enough to accomplish that. The left side of the grass is stitched using the Closed Herringbone stitch and an overdyed dark green thread. And all the steps are completed – again some from the next page.
I’ll work on the right side now and then I’ll have just one more band to do and the bottom border. I can’t wait to have this one completed. I love it and want to get it framed and hung up somewhere in my home – not sure where just yet.
