Leonardo WIP

The last two weeks I have been working on Leonardo. I started to do the backstitch on Wednesday. I have to say, I’m not liking the backstitch so much at the moment. Because most the area I’m doing is dark colours, it’s not easy to see where the black thread is. If I go wrong with the backstitch it’s hard to unpick and re-do.

Most of the window area is halfstitch, so it was pretty quick stitching up. But don’t you just hate it when you think you’ve stitched most of the one colour and when you go and do another colour, you spy a section where you missed the previous one? I seem to be doing it a lot with design!

I’ve been playing around with my camera recently and took a picture of Leonard as a drawing. Looks pretty good to me: 

I guess I just need to try out the watercolour function of the camera now. After all, that’s what sold me to the camera anyway!

Thank you for the lovely comments. Always bring a smile when I see them.

Thanks for looking…
