More copper

The middle two boxes are filled with Christopher Mosaic stitches and Continental done in Pizazz by Renaissance Designs.  The next two boxes have the base of the Burden stitch done with Neon Rays Plus in black and the  vertical bars are worked on top of the one on the left with #8 Kreinik in 021.

The copper and black is looking better than I imagined it would. I thought there wouldn't be enough contrast in the colors. Silly me!

the way the canvas is stretched on the bars is interesting, i haven't seen it done on the bottom part of the frame before. is that the way i should be doing it?

I work "in the well" because it makes it easier for me. I like being able to end threads unhindered by the bars. If I drop my needle it stays on the canvas, same for beads. Just a few reasons I do it. It also keeps the canvas cleaner on the front. Hope that helps.
