The last post showed me starting to stitch these stripes. It is an overdyed Kreinik that is used and it looks great. Below is at shot of where I started Tuesday morning at 9:30am. You can see that I have about 5.5 rows with the medium gray stitch in and more of the outline stitch to do on the top part of the roof.
0930 on Tuesday morning
Three hours later I have finished all the outlining and filled in that sixth row with the medium gray. Needlepointing is not for the impatient. Time for a lunch break.
