That bright blue is not a colour I would have chosen to work with normally, but hey - sometimes it's good to move away from that old comfort zone!
Here is a close up of the corner, not quite as well pressed as I would have hoped.
So far I have used rice stitch and queen stitch, along with double running, which I must confess, is sometimes back stitch.

Really enjoying this project and already thinking about my next Scarlet Letter sampler.
Cart before horses springs to mind!
