I know very accomplished needlepointers who avoid Straight Stitches for two reasons. One of these is the difficulties of having Straight and Diagonal Stitches next to each other.
I feel often as if no matter what I do, it’s going to look bad. I’m afraid that, all too often, I’m right.
Joni Stevenson has a wonderful in-depth article on this subject one her blog and has come up with some really delightful solutions.
I”m going to try these myself on a current project.
