Slow Stitching - #4 of my third set of rainbow squares

I have finished this purple square which is my fourth square from my third rainbow set of squares.  I stitched the little cross stitch down first then the strips around it.  I had all of them laid out and pinned before I started so I had to take it apart a bit to get the stitching for the cross stitch element in place.  I am just realizing that I should first stitch the cross stitch elements in place and then add the strips all the way around that would ensure that they are square to the edges which it would seem this one is not.  It is the way it is and maybe the way it was meant to be so be it!! I has been really enjoyable to have some quiet stitching time in the mornings.  Therese
