Seven Days of BS

Yep, you heard me, seven whole days of backstitching! Why, what did you think I meant? ;) But as any good stitcher knows, sometimes the BS just brings the whole piece to life. So here is the completed Halloween Quilts Sampler, by Rosewood Manor (minus a charm on the cobweb that Karen will need to attach):

For a quick comparison, here is the last pic I took, which just had a bit of the BS done:

So now it is time to stitch up part 2 of Lizzie*Kate's Very Scary; I should have a picture to post by the end of the week. Until then, happy stitching!


  1. Wow! That's a load of BS!! Quite a bit of backstitching, too. ha ha

    Looks great! Thanks for sharing.

  2. That is an incredible amount of backstitching and the difference is almost unbelievable!

    Congrats on the finish.

  3. This has turned out gorgeously! Congratulations!

  4. Wow! I'm amazed you got all that BS done in 7 days. It looks like it should have taken a month! What an incredible difference!

  5. It looks great!
    Did you sleep? lol

  6. Thanks for all the kind words ladies! :) Marilyn, not so much the last couple of nights before it was done! ;D

  7. Great work! Backstitch really makes the difference but nevertheless I think I'm never going to love it! Of course your work is great but me and backstich will never be friends!
