Stitching........

Long time, no post! But, I have been busy! Stitching this project.

Looking good (if I do say so myself!)! I always have trouble with the dreaded satin stitch, it never seems to look any good, but check out my hearts! Pretty chuffed!




Did you notice that I didn't go up and down or from side to side? Well, I found it SO much easier if I went sideways...... I then ended up with a nice neat straight line on the side of the heart. Pretty clever idea and I thought of it myself! Maybe others do it this way, I have no idea but I will be doing it this way from now on with hearts! Click on the pic for a better sticky beak! If you have not tried it, I must say give it a go, it will surprise you!

Only 4 more to go!
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

Looks good Sarah ... including the satin stitch. Don't recognise this project so looking forward to seeing a bit more soon.

they look fantastic! I don't have any set way when I do satin stitch; it is whatever direction takes my fancy at the time! Some turn out better than others. I think Melly from Melly and Me had a tutorial on her blog somewhere about doing satin stitch; she back stitches around the shape first then does satin stitch over the backstitch - helps it to sit out more.
