I too joined the QS freebie SAL on the HAED BB. I chose Terra, stitching her on 32 ct antique white Lugana. She is supposed to be my 1x1 tent experiment (stitching on the left), but it looks thin, the colors seem pale, and I hate the diagonal white lines of the fabric showing through. So I tried 2x1 tent (right stitching), but it is lumpy with twisted threads on many stitches, and it's already so thick on the back it's hard to get the needle through!
I don't know what I am going to do. As she is small, I wanted to try tenting to see if I like the final result. If I have to go back to full crosses, I don't know if I like her enough to put in that much time and work. There are other pieces higher on my to do list.
I'm open to your comments about what you "see" when you look at them.
