How do I keep my stitching neat?

If you make all your cross stitches facing the same way, you are more than half way to having neat stitches. Think also about how you handle the thread. To make the strands lie evenly on top of the fabric, you need to pull out the strands one by one from the length of cotton and smooth them together to thread the needle. Try to keep your tension even, too, by pulling the thread taut but not too tight.
