A cheery, cherry-red tower
The tower of Jeffrey's Hook lighthouse is now completed--a cheery color for a cold winter day and very appropriate for Valentine's Day soon approaching!
The supports under the railing were worked in a satin stitch with DMC floss #666, with shading provided by DMC floss #321. The rest of the tower was stitched in basketweave. The windows were filled in with tent stitches with DMC floss #645.
All that remains are the trees in the background, the grass and the short fence in the foreground, which I hope to finish in the next couple of days.
