Not quite done with that first page, but it's supposed to snow, so I'm posting the update photo now. Nearly 10 of 15 pages complete. Just the top 5 pages left to stitch.
I stitched the grid back in using more DMC quilting thread. It's either Ecru or Natural.
I think it's 256, and I can never remember what that number is. It shows up against the white, and it's enough to let me get a few stitches in each box, then I pull the threads out of the area that I'm working in anyway. Maybe the answer is to just grid for the page I'm working on, not the whole project.
I thought that maybe one of the metallics would work nice as a grid, but what I have in my stash isn't any good for that. I might just not have the right stuff in my stash. Even the clear plastic thread, especially if it comes in a smoke color, not clear. But maybe not if I iron it sometimes.
I was at the local fabric store this morning, but totally forgot to look.
