Hi Jill

The stitching looks great, well done!

I cannot see where you had two the same length stitches next to each other so it’s not a concern. I don’t think anyone looks close enough to see if there’s two the same length stitches on the embroidery as long as it generally looks like good long and short stitch which yours does.

What you can do in the situation where you end up with two the same length stitches  next to each other is when you split the stitch you will do a ¾ length stitch (as long as it does not leave a gap where the fabric will show) and take the stitch down as a long stitch so you do not have a gap at that end, so  this stitch will be  slightly longer than the other stitches.

At the top of the embroidery where the row gets narrower, you changed the direction of the stitches and the angle is a little inconsistent with the rest of the stitches on the row and is more noticeable now that the row is complete. This is something to be aware of when you come to the end of a row because the stitches are shorter, it is harder to maintain the angle. It probably won’t be as noticeable when the next row has been stitched, if you want to leave it.

I have drawn onto your embroidery the angle of the stitches in case you want to change it.
