From my table


This first picture is an oldie, it's my symbol for connection. The last few weeks I have been thinking about this subject a lot and this resulted  in a new thread doodle.
 


 Very minimalistic but it contains a lot of information for me.  I show you this because I made a variation on the backstitch which I really like, in the picture you can see what I did.


Enjoy your thursday!

I like the way in which your backstitch variation gives a quite sketchy line

Yes, that's right: sketchy is the word for it. I'm just imagining two or three threads in the needle at the same time, black and greyish, a mix of cotton and linen threads ... stitching, sketching ...

I see the connection of the thread in your backstitch. I also see loose and frayed threads and a broken line of stitches too.
