Thank you so much for all of the info in your replies. They were so thoughtful and covered so much and I greatly appreciate the time you took to write me back. After reading your comments I decided to steer clear of that free cross stitch software. I’d heard someone on YouTube say that they were using it so I thought I’d give it a try, but I was turned off by some of its limitations. And then after reading your comment that people who had stitched from those patterns were unhappy, I decided to not use it. So thank you for saving me countless hours!
