No sense throwing good effort after bad...

I decided to make another embroidered pouch, this time using wool. In the past I have done all my brick stitch embroidery with cotton or silk. I used two strands of Medici wool on 24 count linen congress cloth. As can be seen in the photo the coverage was not the best. I could have used four strands and it wouldn't have been too much. At first I was going to keep going because I didn't want to throw away the work I put into it, but I likely would not want to use the finished piece because of its substandard appearance so that would be even more work wasted. I still want to work in wool, I just need to plan better.
