Liz left this comment and she has good questions/suggestions:
Judy – I have a request. Could you do a box on the side of your blog to add your in-process & completed needlework projects for the year? And then link to the pattern so we can quickly check what the finished product will look like & so we can track your progress.
And, why didn’t you start with the large outside border? Will you work on the border as you work the individual sections? Just curious…
It all looks good and I might have to pull out some of my needlepoint WIPs to work on.
- I made a page and added a menu button at the top. I can add more info to a page than to a widget in the sidebar. Once a piece is completely finished (pillow, framed, whatever), I’ll add a photo to that page.
Also, for most of the patterns, I’ll link back to 123Stitch because they seem to have so much, including good customer service and prices, along with low shipping costs.
- The border on Farmhouse Christmas. I’m not sure if there’s a right way/wrong way/better way to do it but I figured that first inner border HAS to be right and since it’s an easy repeat and easy to line up the pieces (the sixth little “four patch” is the center so I made sure top/bottom/left/right 6th four patches all lined up. Now that I have that right, I can start on the outer border. I’ll work it across the top and left side of that first block but will stop until I’ve done the border for the second block just so I have points of reference and can make sure things line up.
The only reason I didn’t start the outer border after finishing the inner border is that I was anxious to start stitching objects . . barn, sheep, etc.
Make sense? Anyone have other suggestions? Remember . . I’m basically new to all this and any suggestions are welcome.
