Thank you, Bea. I felt something was special about them when I was looking at them. They are absolutely alike! This makes them absolutely stunning!

Lyudmila I'm a no backstitching person.I choose my projects with that in mind .I realize that some designs do come alive with backstitching but I would prefer plain colour to throw the design into my eyes (if you know what I mean) Maybe I'm just a happy sampler stitcher when all is boiled down.

Yes I agree two beautiful children there.

I adore EMS' floral designs for their being so beautiful without backstitch. But with houses and their doors, windows, balconies one can hardly expect no or little backstitch. I just fear doing it, but once I begin, it flies like a song, as my editor says.

I don't mind doing back stitching. I wait until all the X's are done and do the b.s. all at the end. I like to see the project "come to life" as the b.s.ing progresses.

I don't like backstitching. But when I decide to omit it WH_:{ , I realize it makes a big difference in the final result. So... I end up doing it.

Well, the theme is closed, the backstitch is begun, whether I like it or not. I will be doing it by tiny portions in order to keep it perfect. Wish me patience with it, please.
