That was before I tried Easy Count Guideline. I received a sample to test and so, being the conscientious Cross Stitch Guide that I am, I was "forced" to try out gridding. Well, I quickly determined that I would be a gridder from this point forward!
Reading about it is one thing, but if you have been hesitant to try gridding, or to try Easy Count Guideline, watch the Easy Count Guideline video on You Tube. It might just convince you to try gridding after all.
