I'd definitely like this piece better if it didn't have that big wreath and the decorated Christmas tree....and the time to decide things like that was long ago. Like the wreath or not, I'm in too deeply to quit stitching now!
I did some of the backstitching on two chimneys and a window and the difference is amazing. It's hard to get the bricks in the right place because the stitches are supposed to fall between the threads of the fabric (Why would the designer do that on a project that doesn't have any fractional stitches?) so I'm just letting them fall wherever they look okay.
