The Ark Monkey House
Hooray! Except for the part where I ran out of my silk floss, the Monkey House from the Ark is complete.
I love the stitch I used for the red walls--I found it in Jane Zimmerman's "Canvas Embroidery" Volume One. The inspiration stitch is a "variation of basic Scotch alternated with elongated Cashmere". I reduced the row height by one stitch, used 3 strands of silk and the result looks like wood shingles. The best part is that I only had to rip out one previous stitch to replace it with what I think is the perfect one.
Back to the rooftops of the Ark!
