crafting

we had a little craft session at the studio last week and Missi decided to try her hand at bargello. 
what is bargello, you ask? (I asked that too...) I'll tell you!

it's needlework that used upright flat stitches in a mathematical pattern to create motifs. the name "bargello" originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello Palace in Florence. 

I want to try it now...

I have been wanting to try Bargello but I don't know what fabric and thread to use- any suggestions?
