I spent the weekend stitching Cloudberry. The pattern is rather complicated (as all Serafima Abramova patterns) – a lot of blends, however two-tone of thread gives to stitching perfect shades and natural look. Not only that was a problem (generally I like blends), but backstitch of 2 strands is also tiring, but it emphasizes the volume of embroidery. The result is here: before backstitch and after it. Which one do you prefer?
