I just wandered all over the place on this tonight! I worked across the top for a while, and moved on the Kreinik gold all the way around the largest part of the ribbon. Next, I did the rest of the banner on the left side and moved down to work across the bottom some more. Anne asked why I did my knots outside of the borders of the painted canvas. When I am using a very slippery thread such as Patina or when I know I will be matting a piece such as the Lace fan, I will make my L knot outside. I could make it in an area that is going to
be covered by the stitching, but since no one will ever see it, I just start and go.
