Exchange From Carol R.





I received these lovelies in yesterday's mail from Carol R.. We did a private exchange together. I borrowed these pics from her blog - Thanks Carol! I am just amazed at the gorgeous stitching she did on these pieces and over 1 no less! She also included a cut of linen, some pink gingham fabric, a crystal scissor fob and some crystal marking pins. She guessed that pink was my favorite color. I sent her exchange out yesterday and hope she likes it as much as I adore hers.

Very cute! I wonder how she knew you liked pink? lol 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!

These pieces are awesome! I have bought some magnets and haven't found any pattern small enough to stitch something on them. I will have to try a letter over one!! Congrats on a great exchange. I know you have been getting a bit disappointed! I'm sure this one got your spirits up again.
