This is my first experience with gridding. So far it's working out well - but I've only done 100 stitches or so, probably too early for a final decision about it yet. I've already tentatively decided to go for 20x20 grids next time instead of the 10x10 I did for page 4.
I'll be stitching on JOF all the coming week. I hope to finish the Page 4 sky by the end of the week.
