Default Lessons Learned.....

Greetings All -

This month's lessons are as follows, and are due directly to stitching on
Kreinik's freebie done by Dragon Dreams, "No One Is Too Old For A Teddy

1. If you choose to do it on a loose linen, check to see if you like the
coverage with #4 braid. If not, choose the #8 braid instead.

2. Do a few half cross stitches up in the corner to remind you what
direction you're starting the first half of your cross stitches (black braid
is rather difficult to see what direction you've started).

And finally.....

3. If you do find that the braid doesn't cover very well, and you're
already fairly into it, use the basket stitch to help with the coverage in
the back.

Sigh.... hope DD#1 likes it.
