The month has just flown by here and I have not had as much time to stitch as I would like. Isn't it always that way though!
Here are my quick updates:
Dimensions Gold Collection Kit
18 count ivory Aida
The backstitching really adds detail to this piece and brings out the shapes. I am really excited for this scene to come together, the cafe area looks so quaint and refreshing surrounded by the greenery. Haven't hit the edge in any direction yet though, maybe for the next check in.
Stitching Studio Design
32 count white linen
The Dryad has only had a couple more blocks put in so I will show it next month.
The question this month is: What is you favorite stitch (other than cross)?
My favorite is the stem stitch or the leaf stitch as I can really see the effect. I do not have a lot of experience with specialty stitches and am planning on doing more projects that incorporate them in. The effect of backstitching is very clear in many of my pieces (Coastal View) but I find it difficult to make the thread lie flat and stay where it belongs consistently so it does not make the favorite list.
