A rambling record of all my crafting endeavours ...
I think back stitching the letters would be a good idea. You could always just do one to see how you like it and then decide if you want to continue or not.The design is very pretty. I like the colors.Jen
I agree with Jennifer...I'd test it one one letter to see how it looks. But it's a beautiful piece! Well done!
Beautiful stitching great progress :D back stitching will make the letters stand out more.
I think that is just such a beautiful piece... Maybe don't do the backstitching in black but in a color that is in the design as well... that way it won't be too "hard" on the design, maybe use the dark red or grey?
I was thinking of using the brown/copper Kreinik that is used on the outside border of that motif.
I vote for backstitching too! The kreinik sounds good if you can bear it!! Or a similar colour thread if not.
What a great piece. I'm surprised the letters aren't stitched. I would diffenetly backstitch around them.Linda
Yes, I definitely vote for backstitching inside the letters too.
