I really struggle with my eyesight now and have to do cross stitch on a 11 count aida. A few weeks ago I got a bargain at the boot sale and got a few big pieces of 11 count aida for 50p. I have lots of thread and I only do simple small stitching from a book I've got. dogs, cats, flowers etc.


littlelegs Report 30 Jul 2015 09:51

Hi treehunter,
Oh thats great you got your group going, thats quite a time the library allowed you as well. we had a Craft late aftenoon/early eve at our libray and if I remember rightly it was only for a hr and half. People could take there projects mostly it was knitting or cross stitching.

Hi Lorraine,

I just got my xmas card projects to look at the other night but I couldnt see the chart clearly enough and I am not able to judge the squares so having to go off to get them enlarged some time. Its 14 aida as well which I have trouble with so not sure how good they will end up. Might have to change the aida to 11 count which I have got. After all I do it for fun, not to struggle with.


littlelegs Report 12 Oct 2015 16:29

hi anne

you change your count and have fun with the stitching

or else your your not going to beable to do it

things just turn out bigger dont they on 11 count
