Sistine Chapel is started!!!!

So EXCITED!!!!  I put in the first 1040 stitches of Sistine Chapel.   I didn't realize that most of the stitches are blended stitches.  It makes the piece even more challenging!  This is 0.2% of the project.   I know I am supposed to move onto my Disney Ornaments next, but I waited so long to start this...I am just going to stitch on it for a while.  Will move to the Ornaments when the kids come back to my classroom on the 7th.  I may have a page or possible 2 pages finished by then!!!!!   I do love the colors!!!!

Did you start in the corner? I tried to start yesterday and had a hard time trying to find the middle of where to start. I should put in my first stitches tonight.
