    Counted Cross Stitch letter chart helper!!

    I just finished a big wedding sampler for my daughter and her husband and I am about to put their names and their wedding date. I wanted to be sure I centered the letters right. I googled and this is what I found!! A site that has a chart you put in what you want centered and it figures it out for you!!

    It's a great find!

    That is a great find! I would use it to make a quilt of a word, like a name. Cool!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    Very handy! I can't find the "empty grid key" for making spaces! Anybody?

    Cool. I have always relied on my counting skills which were NOT correct all of the time.

    How neat and you can go to their cross stitch writing tool and find other fonts. thanks for sharing!! the "space key" is the boxes at the first of the line before special characters. each box is a different space.
