Thoughts on Back Stitching:
I love how the back stitching really brought it to life. I used to terribly dread back stitching due to what I guess you could call a stitching snob many years ago - in my last post I said I have been stitching for 20 years. I guess it was back in the early 2000's that someone said that back stitching makes a project look cartoonish, and until I just really got into my stitching in the last 2 years, I really let that get to me as it always stuck with me, which in turn made me HATE back stitching. Now I don't mind it at all. Now I look at back stitching as bringing a project to life, and I shouldn't have let another's words bring such displeasure into my craft! So please stitcher's remember this when you speak (in words or typing) of how it could affect others outlook based on YOUR way of doing something :)
I am off here to start getting things ready for some SAL's, and I hope everyone has a safe and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
