Creating Glass on Size 13 Canvas

Mary's latest stitch diagrams in her Whimsical Stitch blog are for small areas.

I particularly liked her use of Reverse Basketweave for glass in a pair of glasses, but note that the canvas she is stitching is on 13 count.  If your piece is on 18 count, try using size 4 Kreinik braid or something even smaller, like Accentuate.
