Backstitch

I'm not normally a fan of backstitch. When it is used to define a picture that has already been stitched I find I get bored.

I'm doing part 3 of Alpine at the moment and the whole part is backstitching. It's quite complicated there are a lot of different colours and I use my computer to look at the colour chart where the thread numbers are listed so I can get the colours right. I use the paper chart to get the placement right. I was dreading it............I thought it would be tedious.............I was wrong.......



This is a classic case of have trust in the designer - it is looking absolutely fabulous (even if I say so myself).
