I just had to share with you Sarah Lee's Little House, she is the youngest of the group of young embroiderers I teach every week in an after school group out at a country school and she is the first in the group to finish this project.
The door was stitched first as a practise in running stitches, and it can be opened to see who is living there, (there is a princess)
Then the door frame and windows which were counted satin stitch . After that came the fun of adding all the extra bits including a tree at the back to cover the join of the canvas and finally the base was glued on, and the roof made with fabric glued to card, that can be lifted off so things can be stored inside.
We were thrilled when Sarah Lee won both the Judges choice and Viewers choice for the crafts at the school resent Calf and Pet Day
