So, I quickly removed all of the stitches that I had done (which was all of six) and restitched it, by stitching it one over one. I found that I was much happier with the outcome. AND I have the added bonus of having enough of the special fabric left over to stitch it again. Yay!
At any rate, I finished this up late last night and I am excited to present you all with a finish. :D
