I made this a few years ago, and wasn't sure if it were any good.
After a little prodding from my DH, here is the cabin I embroidered.
Apologies for a grainy picture, my camera is no good.

It is made in satin stitch. I ran out of the dark green strands and for the half of the third stair, I used a light green one. Although no one notices it, but whenever I look at the piece, i always look at that half discolored stair and curse myself for not buying enough strands!
Comments appreciated.

I love this, I thought it was a painting at first! Any chance of getting a closeup of the stitch work?

did you make this up yourself?
i would want to do something like this... i have no patience* (or math!) for cross-stitch, but something like this looks fun to do.

actually, come to think of it, i did one satin-stitch thing once... wonder if i can find it to post into this site...

(*not that this wouldn't take patience... I bet it did take a lot!!)

So glad you posted! This is amazing. It reminds me a lot of the thread punch (not sure what it's called) kits we did when we were kids, except this is actually something you'd hang on your wall. Smiley

Perhaps the masons building the steps ran out of stone from the same quarry... Wink Actually, I had to double check just now to see if I could find what you were talking about, and it took a while - and really, in the closeup, I think it just makes it look like there's a shaft of light let in by the trees or clouds or something, which I would think would be terribly difficult to plan. Or maybe I'm just looking at the wrong thing, ha ha! Cheesy

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."
