About backstitching...

Yesterday I finished the little stitch project for the charityquilt.
As usual I was very exciting when I get to the backstitching. I know a lot of stitcher don't like backstitching, but I really love it! It give a great look to you're project!
Just see the difference:












I can not figure out how it's possible to not like backstitching:p.

O, and by the way: the kitty looks really cute, isn't he:D.

I also did a bit on the bookmark. Not much done yet as you can see:













And I have a new thing to ease my cross stitching!
I used to split threads with my mouth. But since I had a piercing that didn't worked very well.
So I started to look around for a threadspliters and when I saw how it works I started to create my own.

It's a really easy concept: just put something heavy under you're threads!
I have no idea how the thing I used is called in english, but for the dutch people:
It's a knijper.

I was planning to post yesterday but blogger was acting weird so it became today.

New update's on bookmark and other things is coming soon!

That's all folks!

:D

ps: I hope you all watch this site in Internet Explorer because in Firefox it looks messy sometimes!

Hmms my mom, in the time of the dinosaurs, did some stitching and I think it’s backstitching. And indeed I can see the difference. So okay, if I will ever start stitching I will do back stitching :D

The quilt looks cute, hope they’re happy with it:)

Btw, it’s good to split threads with something like a knijper because my mom used her teeth to cut the threads, split them and so on. But her teeth got damaged by it after so many years:(

Take care!

I love the kitty and the backstitching does make the kitty come to life. I'm not a big fan of backstitching but will do it when I have to. Thank's for the tip on splitting thread. Will see if that concept will work for me..
