    This is a matter of personal preference. I tend to like patterns where most of the fabric is covered by stitching, but this is not necessary. If you want to fill in the clouds, you might try using some half cross-stitches and use some really pale blues and greys with the whits to give the clouds some dimension.
    If that seems a little daunting, you can leave the blank fabric as suggested by the pattern. It is really quite common to have the open fabric as part of the background. Go to top
