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.
