Summer Homes by the Pond

Garage roof
I wish you could see this better.  Another stitch suggestion from my Rent Amy Day.  Too perfect!




Main House roof
 The above view shows the colors a little truer.

 I altered the color so you could see the elements of the stitch.

  1. Hi Steph,
    Love the roof stitch. Wish I had half of Amy' s talent to pick out the perfect stitch and thread.

    1. You have plenty of talent! This stitch is in the stitch landscape book. She showed it to me for one of the fields, but then we thought roof. Turns out the smaller version was perfect for the garage!

  6. Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I love this stitch. The book is called Stitch Landscape by Stacey Tombros and Elaine Oliverio. I love this book. This is a stitch suggested for water. We turned it upside down for the perfect roof stitch.
    There is a new book by these girls called Ins and Out, I think. It is stitch suggestions for structural elements like doors, roofs, etc. I can't wait for mine to come in. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend stitching!
