While backstitching may not be fun....

...it definately makes a huge difference in the final piece.

Here's a close up of Midsummer Night's Fairy's wings before doing the backstitch.  Pretty, but just sort of "there" with odd pink blobs in the middle of them.

The idea is that the wings are diaphenous and slightly covering her back, hair, and overlapping each other, but it's not particularly clear.

And here's a picture of them after they've been backstitched, with the veining done.  So much nicer!

And yes, those are some beads being added on ;-)

I don't like backstitching either, but the difference it makes really is stunning!
