The black squares of the second piece were originally to be the background for our tree. It soon became clear, however, that the black overpowered the delicate image of the tree. Since we had already quite a few of the squares completed, one of our members, who is also accomplished in working with beads, came up with the idea of joining the squares and adding embroidery. Here you can see what we ended up with - - we’re quite please with the result!
This is what we came up to at the end and we where pleased with our piece.
