The green gridding has made a huge impact on my stitching. In the past (because I rarely do small projects), I've started one project after another simply because I ran out of wherewithall to count tens of stitches left and right, up and down without the paranoia of miscounting. Nowadays, it's easy. I count bold lines up and out from the centre to the square I'm looking for and then away I go!
Having said that green gridding makes stitching easier, this project is hard labour. I lie! Once you get the hang of the longstitch, which I loathe, it's not, but I want to start stitching my NEW projects! Still, I want to finish this UFO, so I keep going. Am I sending mixed messages or what, not to mention not quite following my project's advice? LOL I'm putting this project away for a few days, so I will see how I feel when I come back to it.
Anyway, dear readers, I'm off to Singapore on Thursday - five glorious days with DH who is already up there conferencing. I'm not taking my stitching. I want a break so that I can dive into a whodunit. For more info, check out my 'Daily Bliss' tomorrow.
