    I'm not quite sure what you are asking Sunny, can you elaborate a bit more? Do you mean embroidery?

    I do counted cross stitch and some embroidery. I know there are several sites that offer simple, free patterns.

    Aahh, I think I know what you mean. Long stitch? I.e. you have outlines of shapes, bring the needle up on one line, then straight down to the bottom line? Its usually worked in fairly thick thread, or fine wool in the UK. Does that sound right?

    Is it on fabric like cross stitch, but you use yarn instead of floss ? I can't think of the techinical name... I am thinking needlepoint ?
