Hey look a finish!

Blah, blah, blah <insert excuse for no posts here>. Busy, busy, busy <insert desire to stitch more comment here>. 
Blah, blah, blah. 


Mill Hill Kit "Moonlit Kitties" 
Black Perforated Paper (14ct) 
DMC & Mill Hill Beads as kitted



If you're thinking "hey Mel why'd you remove the back stitch?" the answer is: I hate back stitch with a fiery passion and I didn't feel it added enough to the piece to be needed. It's really all about shiny beads! 

<insert commitment to try and blog more, even though I know I will likely fail on said commitment>. 

Happy Stitching!!

Cute. I guess your loathing of backstitch makes you stay far, far away from anything by Teresa Wentzler.

That looks fantastic! Great finish and I have no idea where you'd add back stitch, it looks perfect as is.

Halloween! Black cats! Shiny bits! Looks great.

That's a really cute project, and looks great even without the backstitch :) I hope you'll find that time to stitch more soon!

Terri said...

That is just gorgeous, I love it.

Thank you for avoiding the stock expressions. They are one of my pet peeves. Blog or don't blog, your choice, just don't make excuses all the time LOL
