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.

First and foremost, always make sure to have clean hands when stitching. Oils from your skin transfer easily to cross stitch fabric and over time create stains that are not easy to remove. The best way to avoid this is to avoid the problem in the first place. Train your family not to touch your projects unless they have freshly cleaned hands. Better yet, tell them to keep off the fabric and floss!
