yes very tedious but if you do your backstitching after you finish a section if makes the end result so much easier.   most pieces do not look finished if the backstitching is not done

I find backstitching kind of tedious, so I’ll start another project and switch between the two

I try to do the same, but sometimes I forget.  And then I regret it when I have to do them all at the end.  
I do the same with beads, by the way.

I agree with you, Sam. I wait until the end and then it never gets finished.

I tried to backstitch before stitching, I don't have to say it didn't work very well, right? :lol
But, I mostly do the same.

I always try and do my backstitching as I go along as I too hate it.  Hadn't thought of doing the beads that way, but I will in future as I hate those too.  Thanks for the tip

Backstitching has never really bothered me. I love seeing it all come "alive" with just that little bit of extra thread... ^_^

You said it perfectly! :) Backstitching does make the project pop to life. Like you, it never has bothered me either, and I always wait until the end of my project to do so.  Post time 2013-4-8 15:22

I also agree! It give the project that added dimension! I always do mine last to watch it come alive :-)  Details Reply Post time 2012-7-7 04:53
I also enjoy backstitching, it adds to the detail and is so great when it makes a stitched piece really come to life  Details Reply Post time 2012-7-1 01:53
