Pin cushion number XX?
By the way I used many Tast stitches. Starting at the front door: Bullion knot,
buttonhole wheel, French knots, buttonhole wheel cup,
and under the roof? Three raised cups - not very much raised and looking rather triangular.

Side with the girl: Chain stitches and two needle woven picots, half buttonhole wheel.


Sorry for the yellowish night photos

Growing up the wall: Looped cretan stitch.


it is an old house!! Wonky and wobbly.
