Starting up!

 I framed the Broom Parking canvas on the Evertites and opened the first package.  It has the cute frog magnet needle minder--a necessity!, Purple Floche and a card of purple and black Sparkle Braid.
First thing is to work the background pattern in a coin stitch variation with a single strand of Floche.  Nice!

Why the background first? Is that what the stitch guide calls for or is that your preference? I am working on a small painted canvas with no guide and I wonder what I will do with the background...Will try to post a picture of it this week.

Beth, yes the stitch guide calls for the background first!

Boy oh BOY!

I always do my backgrounds first if possible but that's just personal preference. Most people do it last or work a little at a time.

Thanks for that info. Posted a picture of my little canvas. Any help would be appreciated.
