The Encounter update

Hello everyone!

As you can see, I have finished page 3 and continue to stitch mountains again. That white shining area between sky and mountains is Kreinik. It took me much lesser time this time, because after doing it over 6000 stitches, I learned few tips, witch I want to share whit you, maybe it is useful for someone:-)
1. I stitch Kreinik tent stitches, much faster and I think it looks great (full cross are too thick)
2. I recommend use short thread, long thread farys more easier.
3. Most important, try not to move thread in eye of needle at all. Then thread stays whole.
4.I've also noticed, that if stitches are made vertically (I mean left to right, not up and down), result looks better.

Hope those tips are useful to someone, and you understand my poor English. lol.
Have a nice weekend all of my stitching friends!
