X-Stitch Mania

I love to create….anything. Since photography is a passion of mine, I use it for many things: material to paint from and as a pattern for cross-stitchers. Here is a sample.

Sitting Pretty

What does this have to do with cross-stitch you ask? Everything! For those of you who do not know what cross stitch is it is a type of embroidery… here a pic:

This is my pattern “Bottoms Up”. See the little x’s… you use embroidery thread on material like Aida, Hardanger or Linen depending on the size you want and pull your thread across from one corner of the little boxes to the other side and then the opposite corner making an x.

In the Sitting Pretty pattern above, I shot the photo and uploaded it into a program called KG Chart Pro and it creates the counted cross stitch pattern from the jpeg file.

If you don’t have a hobby, this is a great way to learn a new hobby and create something beautiful.

If you have further questions about counted cross stitch feel free to email me at sgheath1@hotmail.com, make sure you put cross stitch in the subject line.

Have fun stitching!

I love art, especially photography and painting. My next addition is crafts or primarily needlecrafts. And as if that was not enough, I am a genealogist.
