No blackwork this time, just patchwork  Cheesy

I claimed amalgam in the Ongoing Hoopla Swap for the letter S.  She said she wanted it embellished and with a little stalking I found out she liked geometric shapes and bright colors so I decided to divide the S into different shapes and fill each section differently.  This is the result in a 4" hoop:

                 

and a close up to show the details better:

             

The red and white section had at least 4 different things done to it before I was happy with the look - I would do it a certain way and then decide I didn't like it.

The variety of stitches has a wonderful effect.
