Hey LuAnn,

When you do those little swirly, curly things, do you tie off at the end? I sure can't see any back tracking. Your work is beautiful and thank you very much for sharing it!

Hi Maggie,

Avoid stopping, cutting and starting....at any cost! Yes, I back track over them, but I don't get too worried about staying directly on the original stitching line. The more you do them, the easier they are. Have FUN!
