14. CCN Main Street Bookshop

Country Cottage Needleworks - Main Street Bookshop

Converted to Grimoires for my Hallowe'en Town
Stitched on 32 count Murano in Charcoal Slate from Sparklies

I kept the basic colour scheme of yellow and purple but changed it to a more limey-green yellow and darker purples.  The window and door frames are dark brown and the fence went black.  While the tree became an autumnal tree using DMC 4130, a variegated red/orange/brown.  For the books, I followed the original colour scheme but went dark and added black labels instead of yellow.  One final touch was to add the number above the door - 98.  The same number which appears on the door of the shop where I work.

I changed the name from "Books" to "Grimoires"

and made the chimney a little bit crooked:
