Another lighthouse finish
With the pier all stitched, Presque Isle North Pierhead lighthouse is finished!
The walkway is a combination of dirt and aggregate, so I chose Felicity's Garden "Fawn," a heathery-looking thread, worked with one strand in Nobuko stitch.
The side of the pier was worked with DMC #5 perle cotton #414 in a cashmere stitch variation. For the rocks along the water line, I again used Felicity's Garden--this time "Granite"--in a satin stitch.
I now only need lighthouses from four more states--Alabama, Alaska, Delaware and Louisiana--to have representatives from all the U.S. states that actually have lighthouses. I'm open to suggestions--anyone out there have a particular favorite?
