I’m working on my S63 Pink Saying. I was thinking that I would tent stitch The sky, water, sand and bodies. So far so good. Then last night I tried a couple of different decorative stitches in the honeycomb “frame”. Too much compensation. I lost the effect of the painted design. The design became really confusing! Lesson learned… sometimes tent stitch is best. I will save the decorative stitches for the bathing suits and hats. I’ll keep you posted!
