Was fooling around the other night and looking at projects in magazines, so many of which seemed based on the embellished right-angle weave. I had these amber square beads left over the fireplace in the Christmas scene and was thinking of using them. As I messed with finding the right ratio of beads to go around it, I realized that the old daisy stitch, that I love so much, was a RAW stitch with embellishment (the center) sewed in as one goes. I tried this with 15s on the outsides and 11s between the beads so I had room for the several pass-thoroughs. It looks so dark here, but in real life, the subtle colors do show up. Am eager to try it with another color and bead size combination.
