Finished all the backstitching last night! YAY!!! It was a super easy job, *phew*. Gotta love these straightforward charts, huh? ;) Speaking of charts.... can you believe that in this little simple one, there was a symbol charted wrong??
If you look at yesterday's post of the Before picture, you'll see the the ribbon had a cream and green variegation. Well, it's supposed to be a solid green!! It was a good thing I discovered this before stitching the grass, as it was charted the same way. Can you imagine a green and white striped patch of grass? ;)
I haven't decided how to space in the other particulars yet. I've placed his name to where it's centered with the bunny in an 8x10 mat, but it looks a little too far out, at the moment. I thought about off setting the length and weight to take up more horizontal space instead of aligning them straight down the middle as with Cow Baby. Whatcha guys think?
Meanwhile, Chinese Garden is back on the scroll frame. I actually toyed with the idea of not stitching that this month and stitching both the moongates next month. Then, I can start and finish Mirabilia's Ivy. But... practicality won out. LOL!
