Hey Folks!  I've seen lots of great embroidery projects here, and so I come to you as a supplicant.  I'm reasonably adept at making my embroidery look nice on the "right" side of the fabric, but I have no idea if my "wrong" sides look at all reasonable. I've usually worked around this issue, making book marks or other projects where I can hide the back side, but with this tea towel binge I'm on, I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't be taking more care with my work.  Would some of you please be so kind as to post pics of the back side of your work?  Especially towels or other pieces where it will be available to view?
Thanks very much!!!

Almost all of my projects show a photo of the back, I normally keep the backs clean, however, it really doesn't matter, I keep mine clean mostly because the backs can be seen on my works, i.e. handkerchiefs and tea towels... but it really doesn't matter if it is inside a pillow case or backside of a curtain, etc... =)  check out my posts from my profile page, if you want to see examples or you can see my flicker page:  http://www.flickr.com/sheenaramone Enjoy!

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.

I still suck at the backside of things but am trying to work at getting better. I figure I will hide the backs for a few projects until i get comfortable.

my great grandmother could embrodier so that the back looked just as good as the front! Me, I am lucky if my strings don't show through unless it is mostly satin and french knots....

there is a trick to hiding the knots but I never could master it
