And then one with cross stitches, laced with a thick cotton thread. It's about the size of 4 threads of DMC.
Then I made some standing cross stitches in blue and laced them in brown in 2 different ways. I think it's a nice border design.
And I had to try some chicken scratch on fabric with chicken wire! I made some double cross stitches with the thick thread and laced it with brown.
Now it's time to try the next challenge: the trellis stitch.
