Stitching the starched material seems to not be working as well as non-starched, but it had to be starched because it would not stay square for the tracing otherwise. Solution: Trace the lines, embroider all the boundaries and lines, wash it, do the fillings.

Thank you, Lorelei. I'm making progress doing the outlines. it goes faster than I thought it would. Trying different border stitches such as chain, heavy chain, knots, whipped backstitch/running stitch/chain. Next I will look in online and printed sources for other border stitches; and then wash it when that's all done. And then to the fillings. Thanks again for your encouragement.

I definitely recommend against starch. First, with pulled thread you want the threads to move over easily when you stitch with strong tension. Starch would work against that. 2nd starch just attracts bugs and bacteria. I don't recommend even starching lace, let alone embroidery.

You are doing just fine.
