I love how much detail there is in these little cross-stitched rooms. There's a crazy lot of back stitching in those pink drapes alone, but it's definitely worth the effort.
I've seen some cross-stitchers who skip the back-stitching. On some projects that might work just fine (and I almost always opt not to stitch individual blades of grass or little landscape details), but on this project the outlining definitely makes things pop.
I'm going to set this one aside for a little while to work on Girl With Cosmos. Those big spaces of pink leg and white dress will hopefully be easy to work on during out First Thursday meetup at Acorns and Threads tomorrow.
