On to the Backstitch

Last time I posted about Iris B I was halfway done with the cross-stitch. As of today I've finished off all the cross stitch and am going to start the back stitching. There's a lot of it and I made so many colour changes that I have to change the back stitch colours too!

18ct black aida

This photo is just awful. It really makes the colours look muddy and horrible, but it's all the picture's fault (and this was the best of 10+ photos). I still haven't managed to pick up batteries for my camera. I keep going to the store, buying thing and forgetting the batteries! I even wrote it down and forgot.
