Gerda--I hadn't given it any thought but maybe old age is part of the equation as to why I have thought griding a god-send. There was an odd area where I will still marked the paper copy as well as relying on the griding. I didn't resort to that until I got too cross-eyed to continue otherwise. I find it easier to only deal with thread and needle with the grid on the fabric rather than pen or marker for the paper copy as well as the pen or marker. There was so little difference between a few colors on the bottom bird that I thought it didn't make a difference but it gave it the depth it needed.

I use Crayola fine tip washable markers and they soak away in cool water. A package of 12 was less costly than one fabric marker at the fabric store. I gave one of the package to a friend the other day and she thought me quite generous, hardly so at about 35 cents cost. This way I can mark my center cross grid with one color and the rest in another.

Like everything else in life do what works best for you.

This is the deer XS I was talking about earlier this past week. I started it for Bill in early summer, intending it for Christmas that year, never did get that far, he caught me working on it one day, asked who it was for (my earlier big projects went to a brother and sister, who each got wedding stitcheries) - I told him it was to have been a Christmas gift for him - he asked "Which Christmas?" I said the one just past - he laughed and since then would ask "So, which Christmas is THIS for??" LOL

I agree with Cindy, a very handsome fella. Similar to the one I played chicken with. He was standing in the middle of the road, never moved. Drove right by him on the shoulder, kinda looked at me and just stood there. Weird but I didn't mind. Later there was an accident on the news - a huge buck destroyed the front end of a small truck. Same place I was. Somebody was watching that nite.

Gerda you doing beautiful work.

Hugs and stitches

Cindy, it's beautiful! Have you started the ornaments yet?

I finally got my Pageant Kings cross stitch back out. I'm glad to be working on it again. It uses lots of blending filaments and I absolutely HATE working with that stuff! Grrr.

Beautiful, Cindy!! I'm impressed too! I did Riley's stocking when she was a baby, but DD1 Sarah has done the stocking for her baby James. When she got married, she didn't like her husband's family's generic WalMart stockings, so she has cross-stitched stockings for her husband, MIL, FIL, BIL - the only one who doesn't have a pretty stocking is Sarah. We don't know where her original one got to - lost in a move somewhere, I guess. This is a case of the student surpassing the teacher - Sarah does much better work than I do, although she sends them to me for finishing - neither of my girls sew.
