August Look Back

I've decided that every month, I'm going to take the time to look back and see what I've accomplished over the past month.  To make it really fun, I'll also be posting the back of my projects --I can hear the gasps of horror already!-- because I think the back of a project is just as important as the front.  Don't hold it against me though!  I know that you can create a beautifully stitched project and have a back that looks crazy, but I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to my stitches.

This month we're going to start with Cinderella Wishes Upon a Dream.  Unfortunately, I have noticed that there are NO updates in August for this project.  Ugh.  I didn't realize that!  So, I suppose I'll just put up how it looks now, and next month I'll have something to compare it to.

Wild Thing has gotten a lot of my attention this month since that baby will be born in the very near future.  Let's see how far it's come:

 Not as much progress as I would have liked to complete, but it's still coming along nicely.

(Is it sad that I just realized where my "missing" needle has been?  LOL  At least it's stuck where it should be and not lost in my couch cushions!)

Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  If you should decide to do a Look Back of your own, please let me know in the comments so I can see how far you've come this month. 

Have a great day everyone!

That's alot of progress and it's all looking great!

I couldn't show you the back of mine now I've seen yours. Some of mone are more tidy at the back than others, but none anywhere near as beautiful as yours.

Lovely work on both BACK and FRONT!

Well done!!

Thank you so much! I really do try to focus on keeping the back as clean as possible (I've had some bad experiences in the past with catching loose pieces on things and ripping stitches out). I think I obsess more with out the back looks most of the time than I do about the front mostly out of fear.

There's nothing wrong with having a messy project back though! I think it's become this huge stigma and people are almost afraid. I say put it out there! As long as the front looks good, then it doesn't really matter how the back looks.
