This veritable wedding cake of a house cried out to be captured in all its detail right down to the geraniums in the borders. I enjoyed overlaying textures such as dishcloth in the topiary bushes and trying to suggest details with as few "brushstrokes" of needle and thread as possible to keep the overall picture from becoming heavy.

The piece is worked on calico, with texture added with silk noil, bandage and dishcloth, before painting and then stitching.
