I'm new to Craftster and have a few older projects that I'd like to post. This is the second of them, stitched in 2008. I based it on an old geometric pattern I found (don't remember where, but I think it was maybe from a book of Japanese designs??). I used variegated floss on some of the squares and stitched them diagonally. I really like how that turned out. The photo doesn't really show how rich the colors are. It looks better in person.  Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
