This week I thought that instead of taking the pictures late Sunday night, I will take them Monday morning so I could show what the colours are like in a natural light.
It slightly backfired, because the weather is absolutely miserable. The clouds are so dark that I actually had to put the light on in my office. But I did try to catch as much of the natural light as possible and it is a little better still and quite an accurate representation of th colours.
Very happy with the progress this week.
But I do have some big home improvement projects coming up soon so it is likely that I will get to put in a bit less time the closer we get to summer. Also my wedding refuses to plan itself, so I need to get to work on that too Cheesy

Thank you! I have noticed that some colors stitch better than others. May must have had a winning combination!

Hi Melanie,

Thankyou for your response and yes you are correct in understanding what i was hoping to do, what i was thinking if i could draw up a grid to the specifics that makes a 14 grid template.

One of my dilemma's is that I do not know how to draw up or makes a 14 count grid or graph.

I have tried to research how to chart a graph that equates to a 14 count cross stitch graph. I appologise for my appeared vague request, but i am wanting to draw a grid template so that it will work with 14 count aida cloth only i dont know how to draw the grid/graph up.

how do I work out how many squares (stitches) make up a 14 count grid in centimetres and how wide in centimetres is each square within the grids? If i was to draw up a graph by using the table/chart function as is available in microsoft word (for example) how many rows and squares to form the chart/grid that is known as 14 count. as i do not know any other ways to measure but in metric i do not know how to recalculate from feet and inches to metres and centimetres. 

I hope i have not confused you further

Kind Regards


Hi, I am a newbie and would like to be able to make a graph larger for crochet.  I am learning to graphgan.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.  I love your website.  Thanks so much in advance.


Thank you, hon...I hope your advice can make them aware of the work they need to do so this gorgeous creature will feel happy and cherished.  Kiss  They're very nice people and I think they can do well, once they know what they've gotten themselves into.  Kiss

I can completely understand why you'd prefer to get a lower maintenance dog once you've moved.  Moving, even the easiest, most stress-free move, is still stressful, so it's smart of you to plan to relax and enjoy yourselves after...and bringing in any kind of loving, furry friend should be a joy!  Kiss
