I want to pop in to celebrate finishing page 6 of 30 on my Indigo cross stitch project. I am very excited to say that I have been consistently working on one cross stitch project (before it was 5 at a time) and have been consistently stitching almost everyday (before it was maybe 3 days a week).
Pat on the back for me!
I also wanted to share my way of stitching. I know there is the parking method and that’s the only one I know that has an official name. I have not tried this method and I may never, I have found a way that works pretty well for me.
This current project has a huge background that is a dark and boring color. I get bored working with a single color for too long and working with a dark color doesn’t help.
So my way of working on the background without getting bored is by doing a single thread of background in between single threads of another color.
Sometimes I stitch it up and do a whole day of only one color but that’s only if I really need to get moving on a certain color in order to get to some of the other colors.
I start on the page I want to complete when I have done all the stitches of that color on that page, and still have thread left, I look at near by pages to find more stitches to do.
Thanks for reading about my stitching process. I would love to see how other stitch especially if you use the park method.
