Walls of the Stable

For the walls of the stable I withdrew threads only in one direction. On the left wall I stopped a small step before reaching the bottom edge.

Satin stitch bars (coton à broder No. 20) were worked – at the bottom the Satin stitch bars continued a few stitches beyond where the thread withdrawal stopped. In this way the thread ends are covered very well.

At the top, the walls adjoin to the roof.

On the right, the wall meets the truss of straw at the bottom. Working the bars in order from right to left and always from the bottom to top made the embroidery easy.
