Hardly any progress at all on this tiny area. I tried criss-cross hungarian and thought it looked too much like the diamond on the overcoat. I tried byzantine with smrynas and thought the stitch too big for the area. I tried the double stitch and thought it was too thick. This is a basic mosaic with variation. The mosaic stitch is three strands of silk and the row of stitches in between is the Neon Rays I used on the rhodes hearts in the white area. Still not sure I am satisfied. I hope I have time to work on it today.

When I got home from dinner last night, I was too cold and tired to stitch. I got in bed and started looking on the internet for charms for my Helowise canvas. I found a wonderful website called Susan Clarke Originals(susanclarkeoriginals.com). What a broad selection of buttons and charms. Before I knew it I had $100 worth of buttons and charms in my cart! If you are looking for little embellishments, I recommend it.
