A Finished Church
The picture has been taken in a rush and its not even been pressed but I finished this about 11pm tonight and I am absolutely thrilled with it. It looks so much better in real life. As usual for me I made some alterations. Firstly because I have the set of 5 hardanger buildings I wanted to stitch them all on the same fabric, and of course the charts are for different sizes of fabric ranging from 25ct to 32ct. The windows in the church should have been in dmc with an added blending filament and I decided to use Marlitt threads as I thought there rather shiny finish would look more like glass. I searched everywhere for church bell charms that was not endowed with either holly or bows and could not find them so ended up just stitching some with gold thread. There is also supposed to be a red bow on the church door but I havent added this as I don't want it too look Christmassy. I am not sure yet but I may add some wee lavender or pink beads to make it look like a summery wreath on the door rather than a winter one. I think it needs something so any ideas would be welcome. I have no intentions of framing this until all the buildings are done so there is certainly no rush for a decision on that. At the moment I am just so pleased to have it finished and HDing all around the house. Off to bed in a minute but just had to share with you all first.
