An Island Home

This is the project I picked for the ANG Cyberpointers (gads, I hate that name!) test meeting. The line drawing itself is from the Classic Stitches website. They suggested using Anchor threads and long and short stitch for it. Their version looked very nice, but I'm the experimental type and was told by my co-committee heads that I needed to "add value" to the project instead of just putting this one out there. So, I managed to add more stitch types to it and stitch from my stash instead of going out and buying new colors.

I like the way it's turning out. It's a bit more abstract than the original. I probably would change the buttonhole gobelin stitches on the cottage to something else, but I like the way the stitches are coming together for everything else.
