Since yesterday marked one year since my mom died, I decided to go through some her things that I had put away -- I came across eight
half-finished cross-stitch projects.
Now, I know for sure that one of these was meant for me (it's a butterfly, of course
) and I'm thinking she was working on this for Christmas '06.
So...I thought I would try to finish this one myself before this Christmas. Well, easier said than done. I think I may have been a bit too ambitious; I have absolutely no clue what I'm doing and this is not what I consider an easy project.
The only thing I really know about this craft is that you "count" the stitches in each direction, but I keep losing track of where I should be stitching and I have to take it out and start over.
Does anyone here cross-stitch? Is there anything I should be doing, specifically, to make this easier? Any sites that might help a newbie?
Any help is appreciated.
