Slow Stitching - #2 of my third set of rainbow squares

I am enjoying stitching my little cross stitched elements to my squares!!  As in my last one, I did this orange very similarly.  I stitched the little cross stitched heart embellishment down first and then added strips of fabric all they way around pinning as I went.  For this square, I started by stitching with coordinating floss all the way around the center and then just kept going around the middle.  I stitched the edges as I encountered them.  I did not realize that I had incorporated one little strip that was the same as the background square until I had already stitched it down.  It makes it look like there is a blank spot so I will be careful of that in the future!!    Therese
