what does BCS mean? Also, in row 5, it just says to FPDC around DC but I think it should say around TC too. :) Unless it does and I'm not reading it right. Mine looks like your pattern though. LOL

Hi Kelley BCS means Back Cross Stitch, I am currently rewriting all of my patterns. I will work on this one tonight and post corrections/changes.

FO= Fasten off, I just realized that it was not on my abbreviation list that is featured on the right side of my blog. Sorry about that.
