Starting Over

I was not satisfied with my progress on Lavender Moon or QS Storykeep Masquerade so I started them over.  I was stitching them over one with two threads.  I thought that the stitches were too bulky.  So I am now stitching one over one and love it!  I think that was why I couldn't keep my interest in stitching them.
So here is my start on Masquerade.  I will show an update on Lavender Moon soon but waiting for new fabric to start stitching that.  I will also show one over two to show you the difference.  Beautiful work everyone! Happy Stitching!
Over  one using two threads

Over one using one thread

It definitely looks much better with 1 thread, I always find 2 to be a bit too bulky as well.

I think it was the right decision to start over, these projects are very time intensive and if it doesn't feel right it'll be a real hardship to finish.

I look forward to seeing future updates :)

Agreed! Looks much better with one thread!

I agree with one thread as well! That's how I do my own and I think it looks great. Nothing worse than bunched up stitches.
