Cross Stitching Tips and Techniques

When you purchase a kit or a leaflet, you are given directions.  Sometimes they seem easy to follow and sometimes they seem like they were written in another language (but isn’t that the way it is with every set of directions we get?)

Generally, there is a diagram and explanation of how to make the stitches required for the how to cross stitchproject.  For the most part, I have found this part of the learning to be helpful.  As you become more comfortable with your stitches, you will develop your own way of stitching. There are also a lot of words about how to do this and that to complete your project.  I don’t even bother to read all that.

What I would like to do through this website is to share things that been helpful to me as I start, work on, and finish my projects.
