  1. Hello from Massachusetts! I am new to the world of stitching and have been browsing various blogs to try and gain some knowledge and get some tips / ideas. I originally started with a stamped, then counted “kits”. I’m working on my 2nd chart and have noticed some big differences in floss types and quality.
    My Cross Stitch Mentor has told me that I’m ready to graduate from Aida, but I really like Aida. Maybe it’s just beginner’s comfort???
    If you would answer my question… What type of fabric or fabrics do you prefer and why? Brands and counts?
    I would appreciate any advice, thanks!

  2. I started stitching on aida 25+ years ago and still enjoy stitching on it, its totally a preference for the stitcher as you are doing this for your enjoyment, no one elses. I also love stitching on lugana and evenweave, but linen I stay away from as my eyes wont let me see that well, and then its not fun for me! I would say dont let anyone tell you what to stitch on, you may want to try other fabrics other than aida and see if its something you like, because you will never know unless you try. And there are those stitchers out there that think aida is trashy and that linen or evenweave is the best fabric, but like I said above, this is YOUR hobby not theirs, and you should do what is most fun for you!! Hope that helps, feel free to email me off the blog if you'd like, my email is listed at "Anout me" up near my picture! Best of luck to you and Happy Stitching!

  3. Congratulations on your awards! I'm envious that you dye your own fabric and floss. I've been toying with the idea of trying it, but I don't think I'll take the plunge until after I get moved. Until then, I'll admire yours! :)

  4. Congratulations on your blog award Pauline! Also, big congratulations on your new granddaughter!!
