Faberge Eggs


It is well known that cross-stitch is very addictive. Especially when you feel that you have enough time to be alone with the thread and needle. Do not give in! Take a break from time to time, putting off the thread and needle while resting your eyes and hands.
If you are too keen on your craft, use the alarm clock. When the alarm goes off, it’s time to put aside the fabric and other cross-stitch accessories and get some rest.

Cross stitch is a fairly flexible embroidery style. There are not a lot of hard and fast rules. It is imperative, however, that all stitches face the same direction unless otherwise specified in the instructions for the project. Choose a direction for the first leg of the cross stitch and stick with it.

Cross stitching on Waste Canvas / soluble canvas.

This is a method of doing cross stitch on a particular type of fabric which will tear off after the work is done - this way you can cross stitch on any type of fabric, regardless of the fact that the eave is not prominent on the fabric. The way you do it is to keep the waste canvas on the garment and work the design. After the work is done, the waste canvas is pulled away thread by tread, after slightly wetting it. The work will remain on the garment. Soluble canvas will wash away when soaked in warm water.
To embroider properly use a special cross stitch needle. Such needles do not have a point and are larger because the thread is also thicker.
In the average pack of needles, you will find different sizes.
There are also specific needlework needles that allow you to do a certain stitch better, such as a French knot.

If you want accurate stitching without counting every stitch you may want to draw gridlines on your cloth. Recently pregrid fabric has become available which is a blessing for the crossstitchers.
Set up your main stitching station so that you are comfortable and avoid injury. If you don't have the luxury of a specific place to stitch, chose your perch carefully. Don't sit in an awkward position. Your seating should allow you to work freely, with your arms in a natural stitching position.
