My bathroom's walls are bare and I want to cross stitch a thing to hang up in there. The plan is to mount one of those wooden cross stitch hoops with the cross stitch in it because that looks rustic. I found this website
which lets me make a pattern but I know nothing of cross stitch, so:
1. Where is the cheapest place to buy cross stitch stuff?
2. What like, thread count or whatever should I buy, for the fabric? And are there different kinds of cross stitch string? Should I get some specific kind?
3. Is there anything I should know? I'm not sure I even know anyone in my entire extended family who has done cross stitch (it doesn't seem like it's much of a Jew thing, come to think of it) and I don't think any of my friends do it either so I'm kind of at sea here.
