When I was doing cross-stitch, I would hide the end of the string under other steps so it would not be very messy on the back.
And after changing into another string, I just go though the steps that I already done.
First, let the string go though the hole on the top of the needle
make a note on the back of the cloth to show where the first step should go.
go though the cloth with needle from back to front.
