Looking back over the last month's worth of posts I see very little about actual stitching. Have I lost track of my mission statement? Well, to me, not really, because I see the world in stitching metaphors if not literal needle and thread, but I do think I need to get back on topic.
In any case, it's a bit too soon to tell if the cotton is too neat and tidy for the piece, and most of you are probably saying to yourselves, "What the heck is she going on about?" It's a subtle thing, I know, and I have no perspective! I might even be a tad obsessed. The only thing that will cure it is more stitching.
