House Embroidery

I just finished this embroidery, it's been a while since I've done one of these, so I really enjoyed it.  As usual, I used a vintage pattern.
I made a few small changes, but mostly stuck to the way it was.  I used a lot of different brands of threads from my very enormous stash.  
I like the multi-colored thread that the roof and door are made of, unfortunately, I have already forgotten what brand it was.
A closer view.
I put a little trellis on the corner of the house using white pearl cotton.
I'm going to give this little embroidery picture to a lady who is a dialysis patient at the place where my hubby is also a patient.  I always bring a project to work on while I wait there and she was always admiring it, so I hope she will enjoy it.  I hope you got a little bit of enjoyment from looking at it, too, and thank you for visiting!
