Somewhere I can let out my inner crafter without being labeled as even more insane.


I am constantly surprised by how much of a difference back stitching makes to a piece! I’ll look at a piece before back stitching, and wonder just how something coherent will come out of it! Sometimes I even wonder if I need new glasses, it seems to out of focus!

And then, I’ll do the back stitching, and it all comes slowly into focus!

Here are before and after pics of the back stitching for my dad’s card!

daddydaddy2Tada! I think my dad will like it- he does a lot of gardening with my mum, especially over the summer!

  1. I dislike doing backstitch but I have to admit that it does make a huge difference on some designs. Your card looks lovely, before and after the backstitching 🙂

  2. I definitely see what you mean! I’m sure your dad will love it 🙂

  3. The backstitching gives needed definition to the watering can especially.
