What materials did you use? Hand dyed fabric and threads by Laura Wasilowski. I couched #3 Embroidery thread down the sides of the house. A different color #3 thread was woven in and out of the buttonhole stitch on top of house. I stitched a Coral stitch around the door and then wove another #3 thread through the openings. For the multi-colored flowered vine I used #12 thread as well as some 6 strand embroidery floss when I did not yet have the correct #12 color.
