The perfect subject for sub-zero degree days. Here's a really silly question: What kind of stitches did you use? Is it the running stitch or a back stitch? And do you knot off each strand or weave it in?

Thanks for the post. It's beautiful.

Thanks for the post. It's beautiful.

it's all back stitch, except for the french knots used for the crabs eyes, seahorses' combs etc.
i knot when doing back stitch. i only ever do the weaving in thing fir cross stitch.
