Stitching the rocks and the roof tiles
In part 4 we will be stitching the little sheep and the holly bush on the back of the cottage.
Using two strands of green, backstitch the branches of the holly bush and then go back in and add lazy daisy stitches for leaves. Using a single strand of red make some double wrap french knot berries. Sometimes I do some double wrap and some single to get different sizes. These steps are shown in the videos below.

To stitch the door, separate two strands of white floss and backstitch the door in place. I did five rows of stitching to look like planks of wood. Then take the door frame and using grey floss, stitch over the frame to hold it in place, this is called couching.
