Okay! So for the last 2 weeks my 9th grade German class pen-pal has been in town (that's right, we've been friends for 22 years ALREADY), but he hopped on a plane today and now I can spend my spare time crafting (and not talking or listening or eating - oof). Man, that guy can eat! Looking forward to getting my craft on this weekend (as well as reading, mowing the lawn, doing a little day-job work).
I really like when different elements of a piece have different stitches befitting the subject and think the split stitch is a little softer, like flower petals than the back stitch (like bones). Which all just means that I think it's really great so far, scorch! What are you going to make with it?
