Last week, we explored some slanted stitches that you can use to embellish your needlepoint canvases. And guess what?! Now we’re gonna explore cross (or crossed) stitches. A crossed stitch is comprised of two – or more – straight stitches that cross over each other to form a new stitch. They come in lots of different shapes and forms, including the standard cross-stitch, the upright cross stitch, and the Smyrna cross, just to name a few. 🙂
This week’s blog post is a blast from the past – and it’s chock full of terrific information about writing your own stitch guides…
Henry Ford famously said, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” Now, you’re probably wondering why I’m starting a needlepoint blog post about texture with a quote from Henry Ford, aren’t you? Well, it actually has more to do with needlepoint than you might think.
