Backstitching & WIP: Poppies

   Happyily, I was blessed with a lot of time to cross stitch this past week. I also took the plunge and started backstitching on Poppies. Let’s be honest: after finishing a whole pattern, I’m not too excited about going back over everything with backstitching. So I think my new rule of thumb is to backstitch a little at a time throughout the project to keep my momentum up. I’m pretty close to finishing Poppies

Happy Stitching!

    • Oh yes- it always looks amazing after backstitching is done, but so hard to get motivated to do it sometimes. I’ve even wondered if some designs I’ve worked on would be OK if I didn’t do the backstitching!


  1. I think I am one of the weird ones who loves backstitching! The only backstitching I don’t like is when you have to poke holes in aida fabric. I always do my backstitching as I go along as I am too impatient to wait until the end.


    • I think I’m going to start doing backstitching as I go along like you- I was just always taught to do it at the end and it’s just so overwhelming! Maybe I’ll enjoy it more that way.
