Bothy Threads cut-thru SAL Update 10

Hi Blogger Friends.  Another day on the Stable and still having fun.  I bet any of you that if you tried one of these cut-thru designs you'd be hooked too.  They are so neat.  I had two blobs in the sky and a little backstitch turned them into butterflies.  Also had a rooster in the middle of nowhere that turned into a weather vane.  And another yellow and purple blob on the roof that became a snail.  (you can click on the pics to enlarge)

 Halloween House - Ursula Michael  (bs the two middle windows)

Thursday is Turtle Trot SAL update and I still have 7 to work on.  Gotta go stitch.

Thanks for looking.   Linda

Coming along lovely. I hate back stitching although it does make a difference on these projects.

Love your Snails!

You are doing the backstitching as you go - I was thinking of doing it this way also - then I would really be finished with each page..

I am finding the same thing with my Noah's Ark piece - the back stitching really brings out the little pictures. I am loving watching your cut-through and Halloween house come together. I am thinking of getting the cut-through Gypsy van - you are talking me into it!
