Yesterday was spent planning a cross stitch project (which I haven’t done in a long while). I didn’t have any problem selecting a project. Being ready for and thinking about spring, I fell in love with EMS’s “Basket with Hedgehog”. I am also very happy it is a free pattern!
I have all the floss I need but, the pattern suggests using 28ct. Jobelan. I don’t have any 28ct. cloth and I had no idea what Jobelan was. Also, how much cloth will I need and how big is my project going to be on 28ct cloth? So, In my quest to know, I was off hunting for answers. I found a wonderful site in which an article, written by Lizzie Bolton, explained everything I wanted to know about Jobelan.
I was then off to find out the answer to the question as to how much to buy and how big my project would end up. I am happy to report I found another site that does the calculating for you! All I had to do was plop my information in and hit a button. It looks like the weather will be beautiful and I will be heading to JoAnn’s for supplies. I better add needles to my list.
