I'm going to be doing some trial pieces over the next week with a large scale hair cross-stitch in mind, or a few small scale ones on different materials. Fun!

This is a small piece I completed this afternoon, it's hair cross-stitch on a piece of old couch cover.. it is harder than I expected to keep to a straight line, I've never cross-stitched on anything other than the traditional gridded material. Hopefully it's semi-obvious that it's a heart! Because the material is so thick and almost velvety, the cross-stitch, especially with such thin strands, has ended up resembling a stain of some sort, which I kind of like.
