I am always amazed at how well a piece turns out once I start the backstitching and detail work. I usually leave it for very last, but the Flip-Flops themselves are done, so I wanted to get them detailed before working on the "Welcome." What a difference!
The beach looks more real now, but the difference in the one flip-flop really stands out.
I took a close-up photograph of the two yellow flip-flops, and it looks like the left one is out of focus rather than just "not detailed." I love this!!
I will spend tomorrow with my family and our friends, so I probably won't get all of the backstitching done, but I can feel the end of this one getting really close. I can't wait to see it all together!
