Return to the Land of HAED

 2015 has been shaping up to be a challenging year, and it was in this theme that I started Umbrella Sky by Dahlig. Here is page one completed, stitched on 25ct Lugana "fairy dust" 3 strands of DMC floss over one tent stitch.
The photos are horribly washed out unfortunately, the red is really so VIBRANT in person!
Any hints on how to secure the thread on confetti heavy areas where there may be only one or two stitches far apart? I cannot bury my thread like I would normally do for a full stitch and the only solution I could think of was to knot the thread (I do worry about the bulk in the back of the fabric only in these areas...)
