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.
