I'm still working on some ornaments for Christmas in Dixie. This process would be going a lot faster if I didn't hate backstitching so much.
I have no idea why I hate backstitching. Objectively it should be just as boring as cross stitching, but it just feels so much worse.
The back of these bells is a sparkly disaster area. But since I changed the ribbon colors (hence the post-it note), I figured I should use a same-family metallic floss instead of whatever was actually written in the pattern. Which I probably didn't have (again, hence the post-it).
Yeah, the colored patterns never really match up with the actual colors. I've always found this kind of pointless and/or stupid. I assume it's meant to be easier on the eyes than staring at a bunch of symbols.
