Cross point is the easiest thing to learn.

Addie, tinlizzie is tackling a special kind of cross stitch - counted. You have only your chart as your guide. Nothing printed on the fabric...in this case, 28-count linen. That's 14 x's to an inch. She'll be making her x's going two threads either up-down or side-to-side. Challenging to be sure, even for an experienced stitcher.

Counted is on my list of things to learn. Good luck to TinLizzie. I had the opportunity to learn and I am kicking my ass for not taking advantage of it. First I have to finish the two projects that I have going right now. One is embroidery and the other is a crocheting one. Both are for my daughter.
