I just wanted to share that my good friend and neighbor came over to see how I was doing on Emma.
She has stitched for years and omg her work is amazing.
Anyway, she thought I was doing very nicely and offered some advise. Knowing me as she does she is aware I would expect nothing less from her but honesty.
First of all she said I should be further along and suggested I talk less and stitch more .LOL. She also suggested I loosen my stitches.( I guess I tend to pull a little to tightly).Karen showed me another way to begin a new stand with a loop method and says the back will look nicer . She also suggested that I weave ending stands under less stitches and reassured me that it will not come apart that easy.
I and very grateful for her constructive criticism , advise and knowledge. After all this is how we learn. And I do want my work to be perfect and beautiful.
