A tip for cross stitch worked with a stabbing stitch: work with your strongest hand underneath the work and pass the needle through the work to your weaker hand positioned above the work. The weaker hand makes the stitch passing the needle back through the work to the stronger hand. Repeat. This means there are no unnecessary movements from hand to hand around the frame that slows you down!
