My grandmother used to do quite a lot of cross stitching. She died when she was 48 and left behind many unfinished projects. I was 7 at the time. I was given her projects and I want to finish them. My knowledge of cross stitching is very basic; are there any good websites/tutorials/books anyone could suggest? Thanks. Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Learn how to cross stitch in 5 minutes: http://yarntree.com/007begin.htm

It's actually not too difficult to learn.  I bought a "learn to craft" thing for kids to teach myself.
