Building a house

A summer house! :-) This is what I've been stitching since putting the 'Birds of a Feather' sampler up the other day. I'm a little surprised at how much is done. It goes to show how much time I've had to stitch lately. I should clarify that it was already a WIP so what is stitched is much more than 2 or 3 days of stitching.

Oh Tobie, that looks wonderful! Did you do your entire house the same color? I love it! I have been working on mine. I will show a picture-though I am no where near your progress.

What color did you do the basket in? I just can't seem to find the color code for that basket. Silly I know.

Thanks Sharon! I stitched the basket in 'bark'. I couldn't find in the chart what color either, so just used what looked close to the model. Also, I just stitched it in cross stitch instead if the basket weave. Actually, I used the two different colors for the house, they are very close huh?

Thanks, I wasn't planning on using that basket stitch myself. Yes, your colors do look close, but pictures don't always show the true color.

I was beginning to wonder if I was crazy when I couldn't find the color code for that basket!
