I was having a sleepover and my grandma loves to sew anything she is good at anything with a thread and needle. You name it she has done it. So she taught me how to right words in two different way one ways one was embroidery where you overlap each stitch not the easiest. Then she taught me how to do it in X's it's called counted cross stitch it's a bit harder which I like. All you do is go diagonal all along a row and then finish the X going back (hard to explain over a blog). This picture here is my first try. I am going to write made by Sage in Embroidery and find something else to write in counted cross stitch. As for the image you see X's on the top two rows but the bottom row has only one the one was there for my grandma to show me how to do end it ( I would show a picture of me working on it with my grandma but she can't stand pictures I get paid sometimes to take some of her) anyways you would finish the X by almost how you write an X. Hard to explain but that is what I learned. If you want to see what you can make with the X's there is a picture down below ( my grandma made it) I could not do it yet. That picture below is made completely from X's. Sorry about the order in my blogs by the way I was on Vacation and I got behind on my blogs.
