I have done counted cross stitch in the past and my eyes aren't that great anymore! So, I have a couple of questions for you:
1. Has anyone "colored" the fabric/aida cloth based on the charts and THEN stitched?? If so, what kind of markers are really permanent and won't rub off or blur when using the cloth?
2. I am intrigued with all the new stitches and possibilities with needlepoint (new to me, anyway - I've been hooking rugs in recent years - traditional rug hooking like in Colonial America & Canada). Would there be any reason that I couldn't use needlepoint stitches on one of these patterns rather than counted cross stitch - or a mix of the two types? I just want to know if needlepoint stitches would work with the aida (11 count, right?)
3. Sorry to ask this, but does anyone know of a service like Pic2Pat that creates needlepoint patterns?
Thank you very much, in advance, for helping this newbie to Pic2Pat!
