I guess it was a bear to have to sew, but it looks very pretty. Congrats on the hard earned finish!

Very pretty!

I recently was looking at painted needlepoint canvases, and can't believe how much they cost these days. I think I'll be sticking with cross stitch!

Sally, it's great! Congrats on the finish. Sorry the needlepoint didn't treat you well, but it sure does look lovely.

Hi Sally, Thanks so much for the lovely biscornu exchange received safely on Firday. You are so generous with the extra goodies too.

I really like your "Summer Ball" finish. 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!

leigh, thanks for leaving a nice comment, go ahead and try something other than aida, you will love it. I like both linen and evenweave fabrics and don't really have a favorite, for me it depends on the project.
