Backstitching is not my favorite thing. The border with the sand and the red flowers is my least favorite part of this design, partly because the chart is hard to follow (the color symbols and the lines for the backstitching are muddled together) and partly because there's a ton of backstitching or long stitches in this section. I decided to concentrate on that border and get all that drafted backstitching finished.
While I stitch, I've been binge-watching Doc Martin again. It's my favorite show. I'd watched the whole series (at least, all of it that's on Netflix) once before, but I like it so much that I'm watching it all over again from the beginning. I enjoy it even more now that I've seen some of the animal documentaries that Martin Clunes has been in and discovered that he's nothing like the disagreeable, dog-hating doctor he plays in Doc Martin.
