Betsy Davis sampler fill in tip.

The fill in I used two strands. The borders and strawberry band are
alternating half stitches over one. If you look close you see the stitches run
the same direction on the same rows vertical and horizontal.
Easy to keep correct by just using the vertical threads.
So one direction up and one direction across on the same row
will help you keep correct. I went up the stitch going from
bottom left to top right then came back down next row going
top left to bottom right staying on the vertical threads only.

Your Betsy is looking wonderful. I quite enjoyed working on the fill in section that you are working on. You'll have to work on Betsy Manchester to go with her. They look wonderful together.
