Back to The White Farm

I went to The Needle Works yesterday for the Wednesday SWAN get together.  Super fun as usual.  I finished the foundation for the barn.  

Barn Foundation
Green for background

While I was there,  I found this green for the background of the trees to the left of the barn.  Amy's recommendation is to stitch it all over using one strand in the skipped tent stitch.  

Roof thread

I also found this perfect color for the roof but I do want to incorporate the black in there somehow.  I will be thinking on that.   I am going to do my chores as quickly as possible so I can get stitching!


  1. Since your thread for the roof is stranded, start at the bottom of the roof and work your way up. Use short lengths. gradually replace some of the strands with black. THe short lengths is a pain but it makes you rethread your needle and gives the chance to add in the back without wasting thread. No matter what you do, have fun with it.
