Anybody have any tips with working on wood?  I have a piece of old fence (3' by 4') that I'm going to attempt to cross-stitch.  I figure if I can put a hole in it, I can stitch it.  I'm thinking of doing 1 inch squares, maybe 2 inches.  Still figuring out a design.  Possibly a flower or dragonfly as this is going to be sitting outside.

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

I have done small pieces, like Christmas ornaments. The wood was very soft, though. Are you going to use regular floss?

I'm thinking of either yarn or possibly hemp cord.

Hemp cord might be the best, so it won't snag.
