Heading toward the basement

I've added more "marble" to the row house in preparation for stitching more bricks!

After framing the two doorways with floss, I worked the trim under the windows with a slanted gobelin stitch over three threads. Two of the three basement windows have been framed, one stairway completed with more slanted gobelin stitches, and the other begun.

With that much completed, I couldn't resist filling in the basement bricks on either side of the far right stairs. I'm pleased with the shiny effect of the "marble" against the brick facade.

There's a lot more construction to do before I can begin the little details!

I just noticed the different levels of the shades in the house. Very nice touch! This is wonderful, Anne. I always loved your doors but I see you do entire buildings just as well.
