Please help! I ran out of room!!!

cns041882October 22, 2007

If anyone has any advice for me I would greatly appriciate it. I am doing a huge 6 section fairy cross stitch and I have run out of room. I have done the the four left sections and I am getting ready to do the two right sections and I can already tell that I will need an additional two inches of Aida Cloth. When I had originally started I only thought that it was 4 sections. I have spent so much time on this one to re-start it and was wondering if anyone has any advice they can give me. I was thinking of just stitching on the additional cloth but I know when I go to frame it it will look odd having that cut line where there is no stitching.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

What about framing the four sections and then stitching and framing the two sections and hanging them side by side to make an interesting arrangement? Or will there be enough canvas to matt right up to the stitched area? Does it need the canvas border to make it look right?
