Christmas Card

I am slowly starting to finish the Christmas embroideries. This beautiful card with a snowman was made from the Orchid kit, and it came out adorable! The kit included 14 count Aida, a needle, presorted DMC threads, a pattern, instructions and the card itself.

Bebunny Postcard

The first stitching for a postcard is ready. I know that a lot of stitchers hate doing backstitch. I don’t understand why. All you need for correct backstitching is to tense the material you are stitching on tight and to count crosses you’ve done. Compare, please, two bunnies: the first one is before backstitching and the second one is after doing it. Backstitching always brings your work up to life!

What I don’t like doing in cross-stitch are French knots. They never come out beautifully. Maybe it’s my problem because I’m a perfectionist.
