Time to Get Organized -- Counted Cross Stitch

Since I've been showing off some of my Counted Cross Stitch pieces recently, I decided it was appropriate to give this form of embroidery its own link on my sidebar. So here is a list of posts on Counted Cross Stitch which will be updated whenever other relevant articles are added to the site. This way you can just click on the link on my sidebar to find all the posts having to do with Counted Cross Stitch.





Happy Stitching!

  • Hi Mary Grace,

    I just wanted pass along a tip I picked up from a craft newsletter years ago. I'm not sure if you know this one. I use this technique when teaching my daughter counted cross stitch. The way learned was start stitching while holding down the "tail" and stitch over it. Well here's an easier starting method. Of course this only works for stitches requiring multiples of 2. Take on thread and fold it half. Thread the loose ends through the needle so you have a loop at the bottom. Come up from the bottom of your fabric leaving the loop underneath. Then go down through the top to make your first half-stitch. To tie it off simply pull the needle and thread through the loop. This make a very nice clean back to your work.
