Worked on a scrap of 14ct plastic canvas in cross stitch. I first worked the pale lemon lines to delineate the squares. I then used a blue variegated stranded cotton for the filling in. It is backed with thin light blue craft foam held in place with double sided adhesive film.

Stranded cotton on 14ct cream aida scrap using cross stitch. I began in the centre with the variegated mustard/brown cotton. Once done the contrasts that seemed to me to fit best were a lighter mustard yellow and very dark brown. I fringed the edges, more at the bottom. Backed with thin brown fabric fixed with Bondaweb.
