Stitcher's Meme: Backstitch


1. Do you enjoy backstitching? No, I'd have to say I don't. It looks good once it's on, but sitting down to do it isn't very enjoyable.
2. Do you do it as you go or at the very end? I try to do it as I go because otherwise it's too much at once.
3. Does the amount of backstitching in a project influence your decision to stitch a pattern? No. In fact, I started the Flower Thread ornament from JCS 2002 for my mother. It's almost all backstitching...with some buttonhole stitch for good measure. It's just perfect for her, so the fact that it is all done in backstitch simply wasn't a factor. Picture soon. Sorry for the wonky photo.

That's one of my favorite ornaments from JCS. Haven't stitched it yet but it's on my list. Thanks for the input on the Moosewood Cooks at Home cookbook. I haven't been to the bookstore yet but am going to get it in the next week or two. I have got to start planning better meals.

LOL - great ornie! I also don't like backstitching, but it sure does make a project jump out.
