Ark part 4
The great thing about working on the Ark is that if you can't think of the perfect stitch for an area, you can stitch something else while your brain works on the problem. The other great thing is that 6 of us are stitching this together and we are bouncing ideas off each other. The solution for the diamond area kept eluding me. I tried stitching a Rhodes the same size as the nearby black rectangles in the pale green. Boring! A fellow stitcher suggested a black beaded rectangle in the center. Since I was going to bead the painted rectangles, this turned out to be the perfect answer.
