Working on my stitches

I bought this fabric to practice my embroidery skills. I’m just outlining the roosters with DMC threads of matching colors. I’m using a simple backstitch. My daughter gave me an Ottlite for Christmas. It’s amazing how much better my stitches are by simply sitting under adequate light.

I found a video at Mary Corbet’s Needle ‘N Thread for a Backstitch. Just in case you are a beginner like me.
