It's finished!

You don't realize how lumpy and bumpy something is until you see it in a photo. The gate and fence are straight. Speaking of which, I changed the fence to make it a picket fence and added yellow climbing 'roses' along it. You are seeing lots of French knots too. And there is Cosmo sitting on the fence. I am adding part of a border, but I'll never get it finished as I want to mail this out by early next week. It's a very wrinkly linen, but I found steaming it helps. Hope you like my 'fantasy' seaside inn. I'm sending along this pattern in case you want to continue it to the right.
BTW, I used an entire skein of white!

Your house is just gorgeous! I hope I can add just the right house for you!

Thanks Carol!
I am sending along some Victorians to go with this if you have trouble. I think I'll give this baby another steaming.

Holy cow, Dianne, that is stunning. I am just sitting here with my chin hanging down to my lap.

I have a LOVELY Victorian, but it's not seaside ... I'll have another look at it.

Thanks Barbara!
To make any of them seaside, just add a few seagulls flying around and if it would look correct, a wave or two in blue. ;)

I've started a border in 931 with the other shade of blue in the piece for the lettering. I'll have to see if I like this certain lettering to leave it on. But you gals do not have to do the border if you are strapped. Borders take so much time.

Wowie! Hats off to Dianne. I would check in here any time! I am really looking forward to seeing this baby in real life!

Oh WOW Dianne, this is gorgeous, what a beautiful house. Looking forward to stitching on this one as I get it after Veronica.
Veronica said to tell you she thinks its really lovely.
