SBEBB Winter House exchange

I heard from Edgar that he received my exchange to him. I stitched a Prairie Schooler design that had colors in it that thought he would like. It was a great chart to stitch. My finish of choice is the small pillow that can be tucked any where. The fibers were the called for DMC colors and the fabrice is a 32ct antique ivory. The exchange also included a chart from his wish list "Acorns and Apples", gold John Jame petite needles and some highliter strips.


The mail brought my package all the way from Western Australia. Lisa VV stitched a portion of LHN's Snowflakes and made it into a flatfold. This is my first ff. I have made them before, but not received one. She also included some great goodies too. Thank you so much Lisa.

I also mailed my BBD's exchange this morning.

I love the PS design you stitched. It's so appropriate for the season! And it's nice you got a lovely present in the mail at the same time. One gift goes out the door and another comes in!

The PS design you chose to stitch for Edgar is from one of my favourite PS books. He will love your little pillow, but then who won't as it's PS.

The winter house you received is also lovely.

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!
