If you’re like most stitchers, you’re always looking for great cross stitch tips! Here’s a video I made that will hopefully inspire you to get out your unfinished works in progress and start stitching again like a pro! In the video, I show some of my little tricks to keep myself organized while doing cross stitch (like what I do with my scissors, floss, needles and threader, etc). I find keeping my tools organized is so important, as it allows me to stitch better and I never lose anything important.

I would never recommend something I wouldn’t use myself. 🙂
I also discuss how I’ve been going so far in the large Michelangelo design I’d been working on for about six months or so. This cross stitch pattern is about two-thirds done in the video, and in the video I discuss a few things I’ve learned and improved on while stitching it. You can also see my stitching set-up with the legs I made so it can sit in my lap while stitching. I have a neck injury, so it was really important for me to figure out a way to stitch reclined, and not have to hold the frame or a hoop.
Want to learn how I created the adapted scroll frame? Check out this post about how I made the rear legs for my scroll frame, it’s easier than you think! If you have a few basic tools and a few bits of wood, you can make this at home too.
