So says Dr. Nick Riviera.
This is a piece that I stitched up about 6 months ago but never got around to stretching. I stitched it on a single layer of Kona Cotton.
I can see so much more puckering and pulling in the piece, especially with the heavy long and short fill stitch in the flame.
I can see improvement in my more recent stitching. I put a lot into this piece, though, and I learned a lot.
It is a process, learning to stitch. That's really all I can ask for. Feeling oddly blah today. Got to take it stitch by stitch. Maybe I should watch some Simpsons and gather some more wisdom from Dr. Nick and his Upstairs Hollywood Medical School training!
Luna likes it. My sweet little high contrast puppy!
