Welcome to the Old West
I can't talk enough about the shading with the overdyed floss. The shading on the building (perhaps a saloon?) is perfect for the Old West. It is all one color. It looks a bit worn and dusty. The cactus is also all one color. I do have a secret way that I use overdyed flosses and I have covered it before. Perhaps I should type a tutorial on that subject. I do plan to photograph the back of this project and that might explain part of what I am doing. LHN (Little House Needleworks) has very little backstitching and no specialty stitches. I do enjoy it but I feel the pull to do something a bit more challenging.
