Just a quick update on my progress with Simple Treasures stitching. I took everyones advice and started doing the back stitching even though I haven’t finished all the stitching….breaking the cardinal rule of cross stitching (naughty me!) Anyway, I think it looks great and doing the back stitching like this does two things –
1. Makes it easier to follow the chart
2. Motivates me to keep going
oh....and another reason (you can tell maths was never my strong point, can't you?!!)
3. I don’t have to slave over all the back stitching when the cross stitching is done!
Now I just need to find more hours in the day to get this design completed!
Until next time…happy stitching!
