Counted cross stitch is lovely to be able see the details that one can create with half, quarter, and back stitches. However,Â sometimes I like to needlepoint and cover the entire canvas with stitches. Background can be relaxing to work on while watching television.
Our Nature’s Alphabet chart can be adapted to needlepoint very easily. We made ours into a lovely and useful draft stopper for the base of a door. It was stitched over 18 ct canvas and measures just about 36 inches long. You can purchase the chart as a PDF Download, print it on your own printer and start stitching tonight. Of course, all of this can be done while you wait for your bonbons to be delivered and your grapes to be peeled!
