Hello happy Thursday readers,
Thanks to all who left sweet comments on my last thread. It appears not many readers have cross stitch design programs which surprises me. It seems most stitchers don't do their own designing.
I am loving stitching on the Bothy Threads Cut Thru' Castle! My heart does a little skip when it sees the little pictures form. It will be even more fun making them come alive with the backstitching. I have finished stitching the "king's chamber" and have started on the "dragon's den". This is for my three year old boy's bedroom. I have no doubt that Tom will be right into castles when it is finished. My 12 year old son, Jack is watching it grow keenly too so Tom had better watch out that his big brother doesn't steal it!
The other thing that is fun about stitching this is that I am part of a delightful SAL hosted by Linda called Bothy Threads Cut Thru' Monday SAL. This project is stitched on 14 count light blue Aida which the needle glides through.
I need some advice here. Would you leave all the backstitching until all of the stitching is completed?
Thanks for picking the daffodils in my garden...
