It is tempting to stitch for hours at a time, especially when you can make the time and when you get in the "stitching zone." It is important to avoid this temptation, especially when you are a new stitcher. Taking breaks helps to prevent repetitive stress injuries and eyestrain.
Stop stitching, get up, stretch, rest your eyes and hands for a moment, and then start again if you like. If you have trouble with "getting in the zone" and forgetting to take breaks, use a timer. Use the TV schedule or musical selections. When the buzzer, show or CD stops, it is time for a break.

Counted cross stitch is easy to learn! It's just what it sounds like, you are making little crosses on an evenweave or linen fabric. To work the design, you follow a chart made up of symbols. Each symbol represents a color of embroidery floss.
