I know there are a lot of stitchers that just abhor backstitching. However it's always been a part of my designing. But then most of my designing has had an animated feel to it. Backstitching adds to that. So, instead of rigidly following the edges, I decided to try and outline as freely as I backstitch smiles, thinking about drawing with a sharpie felt marker. Did the same thing for the Lil Boos and Boo Crew.

We went camping over the long weekend. It was enjoyable and I did a few things I haven't done in 25 years. Like tubing down the river. Did a lot of sketching, too. Tried out my new flower loom. Hammered out some new ideas for fresh patterns.
Not sure what I'm moving on to next just yet. I will have to do some charting and see what calls loudest to me.
