Exciting new stitch for lettering

Well, at least I think it's "new"...I feel like I just invented it because I've never seen it before.  I am super excited because it really is turning out to be the most beautiful lettering I've ever done. It's soooooo much prettier in person because you can see how substantial it is.  It really lifts off the canvas and looks amazing!

Here is a sneak peek....


It's a Basketweave base with Brick Beading on top!  I love it!  This is a very large custom piece with letters that are about three inches tall so it works well.  Not sure it would work so well on small letters because you just wouldn't have enough area to do the brick beading.  

Here is another view of some completed letters.  


Struggling with what I'm going to do with these big stripes.....but hopefully something FANTASTIC so stay tuned....

XOXO,
Suzanne

For this piece, I used one ply of Watercolors (it's the brightest and prettiest white).

thanks! I'm also looking forward to seeing what I do with the stripes...LOL
