Cold/Wet Update

The back stitching came to a standstill when I ran out of an essential thread, but you can see the difference it is making.  This is one of the few times I've really enjoyed adding the back stitch detail as it makes such a big difference to the way the stitching looks.  Even the rain was fun to stitch. 

New thread is on order, but in the meantime, I have  other things to finish or make a start on.

I love outlining with backstitch too. What is it about laborious stitch that is so appealing?

I'm like you...I have plenty of other things to keep my busy when I come to a standstill on a project! LOL

The back stitching is "magical." It takes an absolutely beautiful piece to the ultimate. I am always "surprised" at the process. Love your piece.

I hate when I come to a standstill, but like you I have many other projects to work on during that time....
