emerging

The home is starting to emerge on my home portrait commission. As I mentioned earlier tis a slow process. This piece has demanded hand stitching and I am still obliging. It took a while to put down my guidelines through the paper image which I now have torn away. Now I am filling in with color using my favorite cotton variegated thread.
guidelines in place
roofing materials
rafters
front door hasn't seen much stitching yet
walls and windows
walls and greenery
Now it's a matter of what to add on and what to leave out. How much to fill in and what to leave to imagination... I'll just keep stitching and get back to you later!
