Grandma's Cabin, Stage "All Done"

I worked on this a lot today and yesterday. Aside from a sign with the house number and family name, it's DONE!  I added all the planters and then began stitching the flowers.  I did french knots and glass beads.  I needed red thread.  But which one!???

I really loved working on the planters the most I think.  The roof gave me satisfaction too though.  ; )  So here I am stitching on the geraniums into the planters.

Don't they look pretty!?  Ah I love how this turned out.  They add so much dimension.

I added the lamp and the lights and the birdbath...

What do you think Carol-Lynne!?

It's going to look great in that black shadow box.  p.s.  The white planters are the about 3 mm at the widest.  Crazy!  And here are the photos I started this commission with.

I think I'm a little teary, it is beautiful :) When I scrolled to the finished photo my hand went to my mouth. You are amazing!! My Grandma will be a little teary too - lots of fabulous memories at that cottage and this is a gorgeous, and soulful, reminder of great days in a beautiful spot, in a medium she will totally appreciate as she is a life-long crafter who once used a sewing machine like a madwoman. Thank you!!
