You’ve got much better things to do than clean, so stop making excuses. Download this free pattern, spend some therapeutic time stitching it together, hang it on the wall and then let everyone know your viewpoint on housekeeping.
Find the stitches closest to the center and start with that color of floss. Cut a strand that is roughly 18 to 20 inches long. DMC floss is six-strand: Roll the floss between your fingers and you'll see that what looks like one piece of floss is actually six smaller strands. Use only two strands at a time. This is SUPER IMPORTANT! Otherwise your stitching will be way too bulky. This pattern is very simple and almost always requires only the basic "X" stitch. You may see straight lines in the design — stitch those exactly as they are on the chart. They're like half-stitches. To begin stitching: Either tie a very small knot in one end or leave a short tail and make the first stitches over it to hold it flat. Bring the threaded needle up from the back of the fabric. Relax as you stitch; stitches should lie flat and not distort the fabric.
