    Cross-stitching is a form of needlework in which X-shaped stitches are used to create a picture or design on fabric. Here are some key details about cross-stitching:

    • It is a type of counted thread embroidery, where the stitches are made on a fabric that has a clearly visible grid or evenweave pattern, such as Aida cloth or linen.

    • The stitches are made by crossing two stitches in the shape of an “X” to build up the desired pattern or image.

    • Cross-stitching is typically done using embroidery floss or thread, with each stitch covering multiple threads in the fabric.

    • Designs for cross-stitch projects are commonly charted out on grid paper, with each square representing a single cross-stitch.

    • Cross-stitching is a popular hobby for its relaxing nature and the ability to create beautiful, intricate patterns and pictures on fabric.

    • It has been practiced for centuries and is still widely enjoyed today for home decor, gifts, and personal projects.
