Friday Homework for Lesson 32: Chinese Cross Stitch

Oh, the Chinese Cross Stitch was a fun stitch to work!

On the linen I had a wee bit of trouble as the thread and fabric are of similar shades.

Real enjoyment was had on making this funky free form embroidery, though.

I placed French Knots and beads in some of the squares.

A happy group of Chinese Characters. White on white sometimes tests a person's patience. Looks perfect to me.

The freeform version looks like lots of fun! A country dance in stitchery...

I've seen this stitch before, but never tried it. I think it's perfect for freestyle embroidery. I like your stitches on the red fabric.
