Embroidered house print

I've had this little print on calico for ages and I'm not sure why it took me so long to have a go, I guess I haven't really embroidered anything pre - printed before, so it seemed daunting.
I've been unwell the past couple of days and was looking for a project I could do in bed, so it seemed a perfect time to try this.

I've since decided that this is actually my dream house and I really should be living somewhere similar. Ah, well - one can dream, can't one?

I didn't plan and I just used what I had on hand. Some pretty silk ribbon, a little silk thread and plenty of good old fashioned DMC :)

I love how it turned out and I think I'll be looking for more pre printed panels, or if I get time I could attempt to draw my own from scratch, I've always had a real thing for drawing beautiful homes.

Now it just needs a nice frame, I'm thinking white and shabby?
