When you think you're finished

Over the last week or so, my quiet moments have been spent cross stitching, and it always feels like a finish when all the cross stitching is complete.
However, with this design, there is lots of backstich, long stitch and french knots to do before I can say goodbye to this one.

Eventually, there will be a set of two pictures made into a wall hanging, but it will take a little while to do.

Looks nice but the rest of the stitching will really bring it to life. Back stitching a cross stitch project was always my favorite part because it brought it to life for me.

Very nice stitching and appropriate for the rainy April we are having here.

I have an owl cross stitch that's done but for the backstitching. I suppose I should get it out and work on it and get it finished. Yours will be lovely! :0)

Grrr I always hate this part of a cross stitch. But it's all the backstitch and decorative bits that really make it all come to life :)

That's the bit I dislike the most but it's usually also the bit that makes all the difference.

Love this little picture. Very sweet.
