Does the reverse side of your cross stitch project look messy?
I've been cross stitching on and off for 20 years. I've recently picked up the hobby again, to include buying from ebay some pieces already stitched. I was shocked to see how neat the reverse side was -- almost as perfect as the front. I've tried to be careful and as neat as possible but somehow the back aways looks a mess? Does the reverse side of your projects look good and, if so, how do you do it?
