Delicate stitches on A Glassful of Roses

Delicate stitches on A Glassful of Roses

Wow!

Can I just say what a difference some backstitching makes!

A Glassful of Roses looks a lot more complete now and I’m looking forward to finally finishing this very soon. Stay tuned!

A Glassful Of Roses

This is my current WIP – I have been on it for at least two months now!

This should have been a quick stitch but not for slow pokes like me I suppose. Haha!

I will try to get this done by end-July.

This is a pattern from an old Cross Stitcher magazine and is done using DMC threads on 14-count antique white Aida.

I absolutely love how the backstitches bring out the details in the piece. It’s like a different piece before the backstitching and after. Amazing!

What do you think? How should I finish it?

(I’m thinking of making it into a card for a friend.)
