That's why I was sooo happy to 'meet' fellow HAED stitchers (I'm saying "fellow" even though I haven't started on my HAED--- yet) (I will in a week or two). They've all told me it's near impossible to keep your back neat. I learnt concepts like CROSS COUNTRY, TENTING... and trust me, I felt so good when I found out it's ok if your back is messy. I was given full permission to get used to it. When I read comments by other stitchers not to worry about the back, I wanted to yell like Braveheart and go "FREEEEEDOOOOOOM....!!!!"
Now recently, I visited our local DMC exhibition... they had a contest and the grand prize winner and runner ups were displayed. I just wanted to share a pic of one of 3 grand prize winners. Unfortunately, I'm a bad blogger... I payed no attention to her name. I was too fixated on her stitches....and you'll see why in a bit. LOOK CAREFULLY at the pictures I'm going to show you. It's unbelievable.
|This was one of the grand prize winners. She got around $1000. (Each winner got 50,000php). It's a picture converted into a pattern. This is the front. But this isn't the best part...|
|DMC framed her work in a back-to-back glass frame. So people can admire front AND back. THIS is the back.|
