That is what I learned from my homework this time!
While wrapping the eight Straight stitches one should let the thread travel on the front instead of anchoring it. The result will be a proper cross.
Having said that, I personally think the wrong way is prettier, and the wraps sit much better when they are anchored at the beginning and end of each Straight Stitch.
Therefor I have let myself off the hook and here show two versions of Point â la Minute.

This stitch has a bitter after taste, I don't think I like it very much. Sigh!
