I have been working on different  small projects that are the result of my SSLessons with Sharon B. ss-practice                                         This little work /practice piece is done on Aida Cloth the threads are all cottons, some are size 5. and others regular 6 ply. The stitch is straight cross stitch. I have given each two or three layers . This fabric had been too close to a dye mix, so it has happy orange,yellow Setacolor.  at the top are wheels or fans made with buttonhole stitches.The couching is a brown chennile. Have used both glass and wooden beads. The key is Grungboard painted and tacked down. I like the look of the Herringbone stitches layered in three colors. comments appreciated.
