Mini Venice Street – finished


Oh am I glad to have finished all that backstitch. It’s not my favourite thing to do anyway, but when you’ve got to stitch between stitches in Aida, it’s just horrible. Give me a nice linen any day.


Having said that, it does make the image come alive. I’m quite pleased with this now it’s finished but I wouldn’t rush to do another one.

This is an angled shot to show it off a bit better.


I’ve got plans for week three in my rotation this month. I’ve got a new start which I’ll be doing instead of an older project. Details to follow once I get around to taking a stash photo.
