I Did It!

I was one of the lucky people to receive one of those gorgeous cubes of Carol's for the HoE Summer Quaker Exchange. This is what it looks like.


Ever since I got this cube, I have really wanted to make one. Yesterday I got this bright idea to make a "pink" one for my pink basket. After studying it, planning my stitching and going through my stash for materials, this is what I made today.





The wording is "PEACE LOVE AND A CURE/SHARI/THE YEAR 2009". I am soooo happy with how it turned out. My plan was to send this to my friend Shari, which I probably will still do, however, I have to make one for myself too. This was the most fun I have had stitching something in a long time. I just love it!

That is gorgeous! 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!
