But no sampler? No. So I'm cross-stitching, not as small as I would prefer, but as small as I think I can handle.
I think the colours will match the conservatory perfectly.
As for the door: I started the first dark layers of paint today. I did think about the idea of a dark stain, I see how it would suit it nicely, but still prefered the painted look. So the painted look it will be. Thank you all for your ideas! So funny how other people can think in directions, which I didn't even think about!
Bye for now,
