Module Two, Chapter two, part two

D)  Here I used the honeycomb pattern on Aida 14 count.  To create the tonal variation I used different weight of threads.  I started with #5 pearl cotton, switched to #8, then #12, then a single strand of floss.
E)  On C above, I didn't think there was enough of a tonal variation so I went back with two strands of  cotton floss at the top.

I just had hand surgery so although I enjoyed doing them, it was tough creating them.  I hope to circle back and try some more either working blackwork into the piece or doing additional samples.
