QS Siberian Forest & Shore Line Village

Hi Everyone!  Its switch over time in my stitching rotation.  I will show you my last little bit that I did on QS Siberian Forest before I picked up SLV.

Its coming along nicely. 

Monique, you had asked how I keep track of my stitches.  Well Since I cross country stitch, I will start with the first symbol in the corner of the page that I am working on and find all of them and highlight them (in yellow).  Once I have stitched them I will highlight them again ( the same stitches) with a different color(Pink).  This way when I highlight the next symbol I can see it nicely what I have to stitch next.  Because what ever is orange (yellow and pink combined) will be what I have already stitched.  I find this really convenient because this way now my stitching looks just like my chart!
Hope this helps you and that I didn't confuse you too much!

I hadn't realised how much I had missed stitching on SLV until I stitched on it last night.  By the time I got my self organised with everything I needed, it was quite late and I could do only so much before I had to put it away.  But I am farely sure that I will have a page finish by the time SLV finishes its turn in my rotation!

Can't wait!

Great progress.

Nice progress. Looks like a lot of confetti stitching. I like your idea of using a highlighter. I have used a pencil to mark out what I've stitched but think I'm gonna try a highlight pen. Thanks for the info :-)
