This crocheted square is so simple, yet so versatile. I like to think of it as a building block, or perhaps a picture frame. You can fill the frame with whatever you like.

This square is the basis for a series of new designs featuring cross stitching on the inner square. It's pictured here with no cross stitching, so that you can see what it looks like plain, before any stitching is added. The stitching is not necessary, as the square is lovely all by itself. But if you want to dress it up a little, you'll find plenty of ideas for doing so.
