Canvas embroidery sampler

I have resurrected an old project and tried out a few new stitches which have reignited my enthusiasm for cross stitch.

The green and white is alternating oblong and cross stitch ( just stitch over an oblong rather than a square to make the oblongs), the grey and pink is layering upright and traditional cross stitch over a double sized square and the maroon is gobelin.

I am working on a giant roll of canvas so have set myself a target of 100  stitch or colour variations, about 90 to go!
