Hi all! It's been awhile since I've been active but I'm working on getting reacquainted with my needles and floss!
I've mostly done small cross-stitches, like the Jim Shore Santa series and Lizzie Kate patterns (all gifts for my mother-in-law!) but I'm feeling the urge to try something bigger!
I'm currently working on "Stars and Stripes Forever" by Primrose Needleworks (http://primroseneedleworks.com/?p=713). I'm using Jobelan 28 ct fabric and Gentle Art thread, stitching with two stands over two stitches as recommended. It's coming out a little... patchy? thin?
It's a little more noticeable in person. I'm just wondering if I'm doing something to cause it? I'm stitching a little more slowly, which seems to allow the threads to line up a bit better and sit nicely but some of the stitches, especially the first pass, just seem so thin. Am I too paranoid about?
Any input is appreciated!! This is going to be a gift for my husband so I want it to look great!
