Cross Stitch Orange Tree

This is the third stitched assessment for my Cross Stitch Diploma.  This assessment required adding dimension to the project and I used seed beads for the oranges.  We also had to use as many stitches as possible that had been covered during the course - I used cross stitch, half stitch, quarter stitch, three quarter stitch, back stitch, double running stitch, confetti stitch and star stitch.

This design was a cover gift from Needlecraft magazine (purchased on ebay).  The pot should have been stitched in cross stitch with added beads, but I changed it so I could incorporate more stitches - the star stitch and double running stitch.
