I just need to add the leaves to the trees, add the cat dog and bird and then I am on to Block 4. I am contemplating dressing up the windows. I have satin stitched around the windows in the past but I think I am going to try couching some Perle Crown Rayon or DMC #5. I am contemplating how to couch. I wonder if I should have one strand go all the way around the perimeter of the window. If I do that do I start in a corner and pull the threads to the back at the corner? That corner might look different from the other three. Maybe I should start on the center of the bottom and overlap to finish. I am also considering starting in the lower left corner and ending at the lower right with two parallel cords that might look like a sill on the bottom. I guess I will have to try it out. I'll think about that while I am stitching leaves on the trees. Fun with embellishment!!
