Beautiful 3: Bargello Embroidery

There are few more examples here and this page has a bunch of interesting links. It appeals to me because of it’s simplicity. It’s the same stitch just moved around on the canvas in various colors and it creates beautiful patterns.

I did a small test of it last night and I like how it looks but I think it would be more fun to do with a smaller count cross stitch fabric, (maybe a 14 count, if that exists, I was using 22 count) and thicker yarn and needles.
