A tree grows in Baltimore

The Baltimore row/alley house is finally finished!

I popped in the last window shade on the far right--three plies of DMC floss #543 in a horizontal interlocking gobelin stitch, and was then ready to attack the tree.

To make nice fluffy French knots that would make the tree stand out from the building, I chose Silk & Ivory "Broccoli." I added a few tent stitches at the base of the tree using DMC floss and the tree was done.

And what do I work on for my next project? I'm leaning toward another lighthouse adaptation--what do you think?

Love this one. The row of houses is lovely and I especially like the lamp post.

The tree is my favorite part but the whole thing is wonderful, Anne. Hope your husband appreciates this.

Very well done. I love it all, especially the bricks and the tree. Another lighthouse would be good..

A very well maintained alley house! Love the subtle shading of the Loganberry for the bricks. Looks so much like the real thing. By all means, entertain us with another lighthouse!
