I have taken the first stitches on the Creche background - which for me is the easy part - it's taking the last stitch that is tough!..
I measured the center of the canvas with a measuring tape rather than counting (and then of course I counted to make sure my math was right).

Once I had the design started I flipped the whole thing over and was good to go. Amy has refined the stitching path with the creche so it is even easier to stitch and not get lost in the pattern.
I have decided not to paint over the window of the creche, because when I looked out my window the other night at the house next door all I saw was black night- not the building. So I am saving myself that step!
The helicopter is in the shop getting a new clock so I have time off to do my taxes and the background!
