Unexpected Calligraphy

canvas back 3s

My grandmother always told me that the back of what you make with needle and thread should be as beautiful as the front.  Annerose Georgeson’s wonderful calligraphic paintings (https://wordpress.com/read/post/id/9502204/5809) reminded me that I meant to post the back of my cross-stitched graph because it surprised me with the interesting patterns that appeared.

I’m sure I could use this idea for something else…stitching over watercolor comes to mind.

…to be added to that ever longer list of ideas.

    Nice! Stitching over watercolor!! Woot! Love this. Ooh ok a WC background and then trees could be stitched, lines, almost like instead of line and wash, stitch and wash! 👏👍😳😀 You should have an idea booth. Kind of like Charlie Brown. Maybe set up a kiosk and charge $5 apiece. Or $500!

    That is great. Looks like some kind of language that only you can read.
