Last year I tackled the Olivine kit as my first ever cross stitch. I was just so drawn to the pattern. I quickly became overwhelmed and put it down. Yesterday I finally got up the nerve to pick it back up and give it another try.
My biggest problem is figuring out the rhythm of what to work on when. When I started last year I did that little corner with all the colors and then freaked out and quit. This time I’m trying to work more generally left to right, top to bottom, but by element rather than row to row.
Oh, and I just figured out that I think I’m working on 30 count Legacy Linen, which surprises me because I thought it was 26 count ground cloth. No wonder the stitches are so tiny!
If any experienced stitchers have any advice about how they figure out what part of the pattern to work on when, I’m all ears.
