I’m new to Threads thanks to the urging of both my sister and my daughter. I have a very complicated counted cross-stitch project that I’ve been afraid to start. This is a Christmas stocking project for our new son-in-law that’s been promised for 2003, a pattern that I photocopied years ago from a serious, art-quality book that I no longer can access.
With lots of experience in needlepoint and just about every other kind of sewing/handwork, it shouldn’t feel so intimidating to me but it is. What are your suggestions for approaching and doing cross-stitch that will make the completed project worthy of my time and a valuable keepsake to welcome our son-in-law to the traditions of our family?
Small things, big things, whatever you can think of will be most welcome. With summer approaching I’d like to get started on it now.
Thanks so much! Sharyn
