I love the way the threaded back stitch looks using the same color for both the back stitch and the threading floss. According to 100 stitches, the threading back and forth through the back stitch can be done like the way shown above, or with two separate threading floss threads like this.
These beautiful pink and green colors are reminding me of some beautiful pictures I've taken. First of this gorgeous embroidered trim tape I just bought at JoAnns:I don't know what I am going to use it for, but I just love it! Second, of this incredibly beautiful camellia bloom: this camellia is such a reliable bloomer every winter. I planted it in my yard right next to a white blooming camellia. The white camellia is tucked a little further under the trees and because of the shade it is a little later to bloom. It is full of huge buds so as soon as they bloom, I will definitely post some pictures!
