Section 31 of the For Love of Stitching Band sampler is a small study in mixing colour with thread. You will notice that it is worked completely in cross stitch.
I have worked a series of blocks each with the under bar one colour the top bar of the the crossed stitch is another. There are actually only 12 different threads used in this piece. You can see them represented in the top line of blocks as these are ‘pure’ colours.
