Sally's door

Tough decision on the door color.  I really liked the 924 but looking at the large sampler overall, the lighter brown seemed to pull it together with the darker brown in the border and upper sections.  
But what do I do with the other areas surrounding the door?  I see three options .. the same light thread on the windows, a shade darker than the house thread, or filling it in with the house color.  I also don't like the end rice stitches in the green below the door but will leave them.  To me it looks like they are messy, probably because of being singular.  But I do like the look of this piece much better with a stitched door.  Sorry Sally.

Marly: I like the rice stitch's, the door color is perfect, I am not sure what I would do with the other areas.
I hope your week is going well.

I agree the door looks better, I see what you mean about rice stitch . Overall a nice sampler though, my two cents would be light color for windows
