Backstitching on the first seven goblets from page one is complete. Blending in well with the design and definitely worth the extra work, methinks.
This is how it looked without –
Now on to page two and the remaining five goblets.
Just a few stitches in, I knew it was exactly the right decision. Look at the swirly handles.
The first goblet is finished now, the backstitching is blending in, at the same time making quite a difference.
Next update after finishing the yellow one – this one will look quite different then.
This time I’m stitching a project so kitschy 😉 that it’s good again – Vintage Glassware, a design by Marie Barber from the April 2017 issue of Just Cross Stitch magazine.
For the reflection I replaced the suggested Caron Waterlilies 047, using one strand of Anchor 2 and one strand of DMC 99. The original chart doesn’t have backstitching but as I think the contrast could be better in some places I’ll add some later.
