This is mainly an IT saying. For those of you who don't know, it means Read The F****** Manual. This holds true for cross stitch instructions also. I'm blissfully stitching on Peppermint Twist, finished the first section and I went to do the backstitching and I read this "entire sampler is stitched in cross stitch using one strand of floss over two". Well heck. I did two strands of floss over two. I am not taking it out! I am not starting over! I like the way it looks. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
