Cloud filling on Aida

TAST stitch 78 is cloud filling. TAST stands for Take A Stitch Tuesday, 
a challenge at Pin Tangle.

First I made a grid of long tailed detached chain stitches on 14 count Aida. 
The thread is Caron Watercolours.
Then I laced it with cotton a broder. It reminds me of a pineapple.
Then I lace the tail of the detached chain stitch with Stef Francis spun silk with flames.
Take a closer look at my cloud filling here.
