Dollhouse 1

Recently I started another big embroidery project, the dollhouse by pako, the same designer as the four seasons I finished last year. I spent many many hours on gimp colouring in boxes at 400% and choosing colours. I bought the material from a little sewing store in Brummen that is going out of business. I wish it wouldn't, because she has so much dmc embroidery floss! Every month theres another 10% off, and in December it was down to 50%. I had most of the colours and could steal the rest from my mother. Now I've started embroidering, beginning with the foundations of the house (why the joists of a house are blue I'm not quite sure!), and thought I would post updates as I progress. Here are the first two.
