I have been cross stitching for 30 years -- all projects were on 14 count aida except one. That was a 16 count aida and I found that it was do-able. In the bottom of my stash I found a couple pieces of even-weave. all these years I found a couple pieces of even-weave. Didn't know that I had it. Must have been in a box of stuff that I was given. Always thought that even weave was a linen Fabric so I ignored all postings that mentioned it. I'm thinking that I might try evenweave on my next project. it kind of looks like aida ; would the stitching on aida be the same? Obviously, I would grid the fabric. Maybe you can teach an old stitcher new tricks. NANCYE
Ok, folks, before you know it Xmas will be here. So keeping your wish strictly to a cross stitch item, what would you love to have Santa leave for you under the tree? ๐ŸŒฒ
I seriously think she can find at least one other seat....Anyone else have this trouble?
Didn't Kristi mention that there would be a Black Friday coupon to be posted today? Has anyone seen it?
May i know how much it would cost if my project size is 14 counts Aida Cloth = 57.1"x26.9" 145.1cm x 68.4cm. There is no ready size for this project so I guess I would have to request for a customized cut. Please advice. Thank you. Karen
Nov of 2013 I purchased Olde Irish Blessing H- Sku 03-1264 by Erica Michaels. I also purchased all the supplies to complete it. Shortly after I moved. i still have the materials. But I have misplaced the pattern which I loved. It has since been discontinued and the new one that replaced it is very different. Does anyone know where I can find a replacement pattern? Kind regards Anne. Ambyrne4466@yahoo.com
Maybe most of you already know this, but wetting the end of Floss with saliva to thread the floss through the needle AFTER you have drank and/or eaten something can discolor the floss color. Noticed this after I drank a cup of cocoa in the kitchen then went back to threading white floss onto my embroidery needle. Now itโ€™s not only keeping your hands clean when stitching but also keeping your saliva clear....๐Ÿ˜›
HAED's wins!! I have a Santa Claus that I started a few years ago & every so often I haul it out & work on it for a short time then put it away again. This last time was the last time. I would rather do back stitching than all the "confetti". It has finally defeated me!. I did a small one (Christmas stocking) many years ago that took me 9 months to do but now am giving up on HAED. I don't have enough years left to finish one plus all the other projects in my stash & found I am now enjoying smaller simpler projects. So...... I've packed it away probably never to be seen again. Anybody interested in HAED can have mine as I foolishly have several others in my stash & will gladly send them to you. (I also have the pre cut & serged edge material for each one.
Can you please give me the DMC floss numbers for this project? Thank you SOOOO very much!!!! Valerie Romanin
I just wanted to share my latest finished project. I love stitching old homes. This is Houmas House in Louisiana.
Just finished "Key to Wonderland" l was worried it wouldn' be done in time for Chrismas (it's a gift for dd). Off to the framer's tomorrow and then I get to chose one from my stash to get started on! It's the little things in life.....๐Ÿ˜œ
How many colors of DMC used in this chart? How many pages is the pattern? Thank you
