Lacing the Back of An Embroidered Piece

Today I am working on lacing the back of my Kantha bird piece. I thought of a way to mark the piece so that I didn’t have to wait to do this part until I got the backing board. It’s good that I did this because I realized that I measured incorrectly and would have gotten the wrong size board.

You can see I’ve just started lacing the back. I always feel like I need about 5 hands to do this. It’s a bit tricky getting it all lined up and keeping the tension even.
