Reverse Night Howl

Funk & Weber, Night Howl, stitched in reverse

Linda, from Jefferson, SC, “reverse stitches” the Night Howl Stitchling.

No, “reverse stitching” doesn’t mean “frogging” or ripping out in this case. It means that rather than stitching with white floss on black fabric, Linda stitches with black floss on white fabric.

Is this great, or what? If you don’t like working on dark fabric, give this a shot!

Another alternative would be to stitch the squares without symbols with the black fiber rather than the squares with symbols. Has anyone done it this way?

Edited to include Shelly’s excellent suggestion. Here are the two side-by-side:

Funk & Weber, Night Howl, both ways

    I think it would be cool if you showed the two versions in photo, side by side.

    Huh. I think that would be cool, too.

    I did this one with glow-in-the-dark white on black. It’s very cool, but doesn’t photograph. 🙁

    Do you have a way to leave the camera shutter open for a long-ish time? Might that work to photograph the piece?

    Hmm. If I dig out the old SLR, non-digital, I might be able to do it.
