The Latest Chit Chat

Hi! This is my first time purchasing and posting on this site. I just recently got back into cross stitch. I ordered a bunch of floss and fabric last Thursday. About how long does it take to ship? It keeps saying not shipped yet when I check my order. Finishing up one and wanted to start the next one. Hoping it arrives soon!! Thanks!!!
Is there just a chart for this pattern? This is beautiful, but the kit is too pricey for me. Thanks
Ah well, a perfect night for insomnia....
Are the directions included for finishing the ornament to look like the picture?
Series 1 states only full cross stitches are used. Could you tell me if only full stitches are used for series 2 and 3 patterns. Also can Mill Hill beads be easily incorporated into any of the series patterns?
On the guide, DMC 814 & DMC 3371 are both indicated under the same symbol on the chart. Is this a mistake? There is a + symbol next to the 814. The 814 is a deep red color. The + symbol appears on the face and neck, yet the photo of the sign looks like all of the stitches are a flesh peach color. How do I stitch this? I've looked everywhere to see if they explain why two colors would have the same symbol in the guide and what the + means. I hope this makes sense.
Yesterday my husband and I went to his specialist ti see why he has had some pain in his stomach. After a few tests they have found a 4 cm cancer growth in his intestine which they are going to remove. After going almost 10 years clear from his first tumour it has come as a shock to us and I don't know if I can stay strong this time for him (although I intend to try). I just feel completely lost and bewildered this time as I had thought we had beaten the beast but apparently not. So here we go again - another round of surgery and chemo and probably radiography. Sorry I'm just venting my frustration and stress to everyone to try and relieve my feelings..
I recently posted a message about finding a bigger that 8 x 10 Loran magnetic board. I did find one that was 12 x 18 but it wasn't what I expected. The size was 12 inches high x 18 inches long. I thought it was the other way around, 12 inches long and 18 inches high. It was too heavy to put on the folding stand. Unfortunately I have to return it. I was thinking about a magnetic dry erase board but not sure if they would hold up on the folding stand. They might be too heavy. Does anyone know if it will hold up on the stand or anything else I could try?
Hi is there a way to search for patterns by number of colors in the project? I enjoy doing the projects with a low number of colors (like under 15 colors)
Turned out taking something to work on was a good idea. It helped keep me from losing my charming demeanor after dealing with the less than helpful people at Jet Blue. 5 hours at the Nantucket airport.....we could have taken the ferry to Hyannis, the bus to Boston, and gotten there sooner.
This is in booklet form, which I do not like. Before I order more, I will need to find out in what form it is sent. Also, the symbols are on there as to what colors to use but now what stitch to use. Confusing!
How do you wash a cross stitch project?
Noticed that on the "description" part of some of the patterns, the last half of the "stitch count" of a pattern is missing? It doesn't appear to be on all the pattern descriptions, but on some of them.
Hello, I would like to stitch this on Aida 14. What color is closest to the color of the linen specified in the pattern? Thank you.
I want to order this kit, and wondered which 8x8 frame looks better with it - Rust or Taupe? I already have a couple made up with the green frame that it's pictured with, so I would like something different if possible. Thank you!
