I am working on Carnation, Lily, Lily, Rose. It is taking a lot of time, but I am finding it worthwhile. Hoping to give it to Mother 2006 Christmas.
ANYWAY . . .
I have found that taking a fabric marker (rinses away with cold water) and marking every ten spaces helps TREMENDOUSLY when it comes to counting and stitching. This way, I can go each 10 x 10 block and stitch each color(s) without having to change every stitch.
It has given me my sanity back as I had put this down for about 6 months - my eyes going buggy.
Actually, I am not sure what brand. It is blue and I got it at Joanne's. It was with the scissors, etc. But, it is a fabric marker - they all work pretty well. It's nice because when I am done with a project and wash it in cold water, the marker goes away, too.
I also use the marker to mark the center of a piece if that is where I am starting. . .
That tool and my stitch count ruler have been life savers!
