Busy days, busy people--but I had two hours of good stitching time in the car yesterday, driving to Boston for the graduation of our youngest son from Boston University!
The facade of the wing is almost completed with the exception of the door--I'll do all three later. With the addition of satin stitches in DMC floss #712 for the architectural details, the center chapel area is starting to come to life. It's interesting to see how the light plays off these areas, before the shading is even added, making them look lighter than the wall stitched in the same color of floss.
The base of the stairs in two areas has also been added with DMC floss #433 in a slanted gobelin stitch over two threads. The sidewalk below was worked in tent stitches with DMC floss #648 and the road below in DMC floss #535 in slanted gobelin stitches over three threads.
Once I finish construction of the buildings, I can start adding greenery in a variety of colors and textures!
