The chart recommends to begin in the upper left corner and to stitch all the cross stitched sections. Oh dear - I have done neither.
My reason for starting bottom left is that I might add a little something to the upper section. I did intend to dutifully work all the cross stitches but I could not resist having a dabble with the satin and stem stiches.
It is early days but I am liking stem stitch.
Ruthy is very well charted with excellent and detailed instructions. I feel if Marsha is right here holding my hand.
