It is tempting to stitch for hours at a time, especially when you can make the time and when you get in the "stitching zone." It is important to avoid this temptation, especially when you are a new stitcher. Taking breaks helps to prevent repetitive stress injuries and eyestrain.
Stop stitching, get up, stretch, rest your eyes and hands for a moment, and then start again if you like. If you have trouble with "getting in the zone" and forgetting to take breaks, use a timer. Use the TV schedule or musical selections. When the buzzer, show or CD stops, it is time for a break.

Everyone has trouble seeing stitches when she/he stitches white on white. The trick is to put a piece of black material behind the canvas. This will provide contrast between canvas and the white thread.
