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.
There are two methods to stitching. When you’re just starting out, you’ll probably want to stitch each X one at a time. When you become more comfortable, you can eventually work a row of half stitches (/ / / /), then work backward to complete the Xs. This method is easier to do without a hoop. So just keep it simple at first until you get the hang of it. The main thing is that each X crosses in the same direction. That is, the top thread of the X should always slant in the same direction. It doesn't matter which way they slant, but if they're mixed, the finished piece will look uneven.
