Stitching off the Grid #3

There was a scandalous rumor that the shape on top of the arch was an ice cream cone. No. It is a house.

To counter that ridiculous rumor, I’ve added a door and windows onto the house shape. The windows and door are stitched to the chain stitches that make the body of the house. These embroidery stitches sort of float on the bed of chain stitches giving the shapes more dimension.

The lazy daisy roof tiles are filled in with straight stitches with a festive variegated thread. It’s sort of like adding sprinkles on top.

Ok, now I get the ice cream cone rumor.
