How Brave Are You?


Someone once asked me if I was brave enough to show the back of my stitching. At that point I hadn’t been stitching long and was certainly not brave enough. Until that point I had only ever concerned myself with what it looked like from the front, and then what a surprise, and disappointment, the back was! (Yes, that’s partly where the blog name came from!) Over the years I have realized that the back can be almost as neat as the front. Since I haven’t done much stitching on the Mighty Samurai, and any progress pictures would be like those ‘spot the ten differences’ pictures you sometimes get in magazines,  I thought I would challenge you to (I know this sounds rude!) show your backside!!!

Here’s the backside of my Samurai.


Certainly neater than my first few stitching projects, and definitely not as many tangled threads as there used to be either!

So, are you up for the challenge?  This is purely for fun, there are no prizes…are you brave enough to post a picture on your blog of the back of your stitching?

Until next time…happy stitching!

No way, not brave enough to show the mess. Your Samurai looks wonderful I'll try harder to keep my backs neat.

I thought it was the front!

I'll post the back of mine at the weekend. I'm not sure it's as good as yours but it isn't bad.

Woah there, now that is a back to be proud of!
I will post a pic of my back over the weekend, although its nowhere near as neat as yours is due to the amount of confetti stitching I've had to do. I do try to be as back tidy as possible.
Well done, very neat work indeed!

He looks as good as the front! I'm not sure if I'm as brave as you Rhona, but maybe I'll post the back of Tanglewood just for you (if it's any good!)

The back looks good! I have started to try and make the back as neat as the front but I have to admit the back of Cheers! is not to be proud of! lol

That's a fantastic back, its always a good one when you can tell from the back what the front looks like.
