It's done!!!!

I started Little House Neighborhood by Little House Needleworks back in September of 2008 and put the final stitches into it last night. Six months seemed like a long time for a project but I had this one in rotation with a few others so it's a wonderful feeling to have it done and I love how it turned out. I made a few changes with the floss and eliminated the phrase at the bottom and added our surname to make it a bit more personal.

I stitched it on 25 ct mint lugana over two and here are the floss changes I made:

Top House - Roasted Chestnut by Crescent Colours
Left Middle House - Cadet and Teal Frost by WDW
Right Middle House - Grape Arbor by GAST
Bottom House - Wood Smoke and Maple Syrup by GAST
