SALexandre - Layout of Stitching Panels
I have used pins to mark every ten threads 126 stitches high. There are 10 threads surrounding each panel on the top and bottom and outer sides and 20 threads between each panel. I have used a pulled thread at the top to mark what may be a cutting line. Once the panels are stitched, I can use the top section above the pulled thread to stitch the smaller inner pieces of embroidery. I have also hand-overcast the edges of the linen to keep it from fraying. I will not be using a hoop and will roll the linen over my needleroll to keep creases from marring my work.
