Country Cottage Needleworks - Main Street Cafe
Converted to Cauldrons Store for my Hallowe'en Town
Stitched on 32 count Murano in Charcoal Slate from Sparklies
I took the original colours and just darkened them a bit. The peachy-orange walls became peachy-brown. The green awnings and door became lime-green and the trims a dark brown. The upstairs curtains stayed the same purple.
Then I added the brass cauldron sign, some cauldrons in the window and a large cauldron bubbling away for demonstration purposes so passing witches could gather around it rather than be seated at a nice little patio table.
All of these extras were designed by me using pencil and graph paper.
Here is the full piece so far:
