Next Start

Hi friends,
I was sorting through some charts and kits I bought during 2011 over the weekend and came across my supplies for the Birds of a Feather mystery sampler by With Thy Needle and Thread .



I'd purchased this when it was released and never even got to put one stitch into it last year. So I've decided once I finish "Rosey", hopefully this week sometime,  this is going to be my next main project :)  I'm not sure if I'm going to start with the outside border first, or in the middle of the design as that's I normally do with a new project. Any thoughts?


Thanks for taking the time to comment on my last post!


See you soon x

Sounds like a great project and the thread colors are so pretty. I start at the top left 3 inches down and in and work the border as I work across and down. That is most of the time, sometimes a figure in the middle will draw me in and I just have to start there. Well I'm no help. CJ in OK ;-)

Lovely project. Looking forward to seeing your new start. I usually start in the middle as I like my stitching to be centered on the linen.

Hugs,
Veronica.

Lovely new project. I always start from the middle.

Love the Birds of a Feather. I have that one all kitted up too, can't wait to start that one. I have always been taught to start in the middle but only recently been doing corner starts... makes me nervous doing it that way, I always double check the measurements. Looking forward to seeing your new start! Have a great week!

That's a gorgeous design in really luscious colors. I have to start in the center. Murphy's law says the design will always be off-center if I try to start in one corner, no matter how carefully I cut and measure!

I love this one, I can't wait to see your start.

Can't wait to see your start on this. It is gorgeous.

This is my next big start too! I'm stitching it as a thank you gift for a friend. She lets me use her sewing machine all the time and I offered to stitch something for her. This was her choice! I just got it kitted up last week.

That mystery sampler looks cool, and I love the muted colors of the fibers.
