All the lines shown here in green need to be backstitched. I backed stitched over 4 threads using the same colour for all of this and when it came to the second inner row on the squares I left a space of 4 threads.... but remember the choice is yours.
I am now stitching one that has deep yellow for the main outlining and then the inner squares are stitched in red and green alternating. the colours, will look very festive I think finished.. will keep you posted on the result.
Don't make these stitches too big, smaller stitches will make the construction finish neater.
In the centre of each square I drew a circle approx 2.5cm or 1inch across. I found an empty plastic spool that DMC Perle 8 threads come on excellent to trace arround these pencil lines will be covered later.
Will be back tomorrow with the next part till then happy stitching
