le mieux- thank you so much for your kind words.

okay, well. i've never taken any kind of formal class, so forgive me if my procedures are a bit crude. i don't know how you're supposed to do it, but i'll tell you how i've done it. on this particular cross stitch i had reference pictures of each character and free handed the image i had in my head onto the graph paper, used my lines to try and transfewr the image into squares using the graph paper it was already on, wrote in each section what color to stitch, and took the image with me to a craft store to make sure i picked up all the colors i needed. i've also photo copies tough images onto graph paper and graphed them out. i use standard size graph paper...so my reference is always much bigger than my finished product. but for me it's easier to count the squares that way. so, you use graph paper as a reference and count your squares per line and color. then you go at your stitched image line by line. did i answer your question? if not...let me know.

hey, everyone. below is a christmas gift i made for my boyfriend last year. here is the finished product. in order from left to right; towelie, my boyfriend, and cartman. and, yes...the southpark characterization looks exactly like him. i even have him wearing his green zelda shirt. (sorry for the poor quality photos...they were taken with my cell phone.)

below is the graph paper i downloaded online, drew the images onto, then graph out the image into squares.

these next 2 picture show my work in progress.

it took awhile, but he loved it. thanks for looking.  Grin
