Cross Stitching

I love to do cross stitching. A lady I work with wants me to do a picture for her. But the backs of my canvas is still looking a little messy. She is a perfectionist. Now, ideally you want the back to look almost as good as the front. What do I do? I am totally afraid to do it.

Well, like PBS I tried but failed to make the back look neat. My suggestion is a simple one when you are done cover the back and frame it for her.

Tried cross stitching, but just didn't have the patience for it...then again, that was several years ago...Maybe I should give it another shot...

But that would involve me breaking away from my sewing machine...I am constantly amazed of what I can produce sewing. More and more of my garments are wearable now that I am getting better at sewing... Saves me money on fabrics too
