Highly original site with excellent content. Elaine Layden demonstrates her techniques
for converting photos to cross-stitch charts and applying it to PC software programs in a series of simple step-by-step guides, plus free charts.
I have been cross-stitching and using Easy Cross to generate my own charts for more years than I care to remember - yet I still found plenty of useful information and tips on Elaine's site to help me improve my techniques. For all you budding designers out there - bookmark this site in your 'Excellent Resources' folder. This site gets a big thumbs up from me!
