A tonal column using cross stitch on canvas.

Notes from Working Sheets:

Begun: 8.28.11
Finished: 8.30.11
Total Time: 5h45

Cost:
Needle and Canvas $1
Threads: $1
(crewel wool and DMC floss in white and black)

Originally I tried to work one grayscale section at a time, but it seemed to work best to develop the entire column and then go back and tweak it.

Important to remember that white threads underneath black create a darker area than black under white
