Rowan leaves and berries form the dominant decorative theme in this wonderful house and they in turn are the perfect vehicle for a range of interesting and enjoyable stitches in this design.
As well as the usual crewel stitches such as Stem, French Knots and Long & Short, you will come across a number of less common stitches in the Rowan berries, such as Pistil, Whipped Spider's, Buttonhole, and Spiral Buttonhole. You could also use the Rowan berries to experiment with other stitches that you feel might work in the space.
