Counting Pins

I had a go at making some counting pins last night and I was quite pleased with my effort I also made a stitch unpicker as well, I finished my Lizzie Kate HOE stitching quite pleased with my finish I hope my partner will like it. Now on to the next exchange which is the Prairie Schooler one, will have to choose a pattern.

Those are lovely! I've been wanting to make some counting pins myself for my current cross stitch project. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any instructions on how to do it online. I would really appreciate it if you shared how you made yours or could point me in the right direction on where to find instructions for this. =)
