Although I am really enjoying moving on to the second page of Golden, I'm not so keen on more background. I really want to stitch some detail! And come on! How often do we say that! Unfortunetly I am a stickler to following my own stitching 'rules'! I will stitch in order in which the symbols appear on the page I am stitching.
When I am stitching a page next to the completed page on the right (like in the picture above) I find that I like to stitch the symbols in order down the first column. I think that way I can join the two pages sooner. If I am stitching the next page to the bottom of the comleted page I would follow the symbols across the first row, again to quickly join the bottom of the first page and the top of the next page!
I hope I haven't confused you too much! I think I like to do this mainly to close the gap between pages, but also it takes the guess work out of it for me. I dont' have to think about what symbol to do next!
I'm going to borrow Joyse's idea and ask you all a question. How do you decide what symbol to stitch next? Do you have a process or is it more random for you?
Until the next Stitch!
