    Crewelwork is an ideal technique for anyone new to embroidery. If you want to add some colour to your framed piece think about using a coloured mount or matt board that compliments the colours used in the picture. Very simple boxes can be used to show off complex embroidery, while very simple embroidery can accent a more complicated box. How to follow a chart Welcome back to your learn how to cross stitch lesson. Lay the work face up on top of the board.

    If you have added beads to your cross stitch or are framing a raised embroidery piece you might want to look at frames with a deep rebate, that is the "lip" on the back where you sit the glass, fabric and mount boards. We are directed to a later chapter of the book for information about the embroidery — the design and a guide for stitching it, along with access to the stitch glossary. How to work the cross stitches The photo shows what is known as the continental method, this is a good way to learn how to cross stitch. Choosing a frame When choosing a frame it may be best to go for something traditional. As there are many stitches to work in this colour on the other side of the flower stem I would leave them for a separate piece of thread.

    Framing cross stitch step Two Starting at the top centre push more pins into the foam on the edge of the board, placing each one about one half to one inch apart. Just let the needle and thread dangle from your work for a moment or two and it will untwist itself. The technique uses a variety of geometric stitches in one colour which enables dramatic effects to be created. Fold the fabric in half both ways, and crease it gently, to mark the centre. If you are framing cross stitch worked on Aida fabric try to line up the rows of squares so that the piece ends up straight.
