Water Games update

After realising that I can't finish my birth sampler until my boss's wife has her baby I decided to devote my stitching time to Water Games instead of starting something new. Have almost finished this half of the chart, hopefully the other half won't take as long as I am actually enjoying it this time round, also backstitching each quarter as I stitch it as I dispise backstitch and this way I know that as soon as the last page is done I won't have to go back over anything. See you all next sunday!

I hate backstittching too. Loretta is right. Do the backstitching as you go along it really does make a difference.

So long as it doesn't get shelved like the one I am doing did.

You're doing well, you must be pleased. The others are right about doing the back stitching as you go, it also gives it that more'finished'look even when you know you've more to do. (if that makes sense)
Anyhow Well Done.

Happy stitching

This is coming along really well. Backstitchoing adds such a lot to the finished item. I quite enjoy doing it now. I find it much easier on linen or any evenweave.

I also backstitch as I go along, makes it much easier in the end.
