Halloween Mystery SAL - Jodyri Designs - Part 3

I was again lucky enough to be asked to model stitch the Halloween mystery SAL for Jodyri Designs.  Being asked to model stitch means I also get to see the whole chart before the participants and I have to stitch each section before it is released to the participants.

I have permission to release my pictures of each part of the design as they are released to the participants of the SAL.

I am stitching my design on 28 count Brittney in Toxic Potion with the letters stitched in Witches Brew and the motifs in Nevermore.  The fabric and threads are all available from Jodyri Designs.

Here is part 3 of the SAL:-

I decided to back stitch down one side of all the letters with one strand of Nevermore and I am really pleased with how it turned out.  It gives them a slight 3D effect and also stops the letters blending into the fabric.

Keep stitching and smiling

Very cool. I like the effect with the backstitch.

Great work on the mystery, those pumpkins are awesome!
The lettering effect looks good too.

I love this wip Nic. And I think the backstitch effect is awesome, it really does make it look 3D. Sorry but I may have to steal this idea in future projects. Such a clever girl you are. xo Alicia
