5" tree IV

This is #3 of the canvases for Susan Roberts' 5" tree.  On the left I have almost completed stitching the basketweave.  There are spaces pre-marked on the canvas which are left blank and are the locators of an embellishment-type stitch.  On the right I have started the first of several stripes of the diagonal long-armed cross stitch. 


  1. What background thread did you use for the left side, Mary Agnes? Seems quite a bit darker than the canvas itself.

  2. It's a silk lame braid and is intended to be darker. The next stitch will be in a gold Treasure braid. I hope to do that tomorrow (Sunday) in the daylight!!
