Have to laugh...

My husband found this downstairs in the man cave. He brings it up and says, "Do you want me to clean this for Thanksgiving?". I said sure...after all it gives him something to do. Seriously, did I actually stitch on Aida? Something in me just couldn't part with the piece, although I did over dye (probably one of my first) the stark cream fabric. Guess it won't hurt to hang for a few days.
Thankful to have found linen!

I often think the same thing. How could I have stitched on Aida? Still I can't part with those first pieces I did before moving on to linen. All that work, right?

I guess many of us feel the same way. I remember the first time I stitched on linen. The girl in my then LNS actually forced me into it..with some bribery. I have not gone back to aida...well, maybe a few times on 18ct....but I dread it. And yse, you should hang it up...it is a nice piece.

Me too! But I'll never part with my first pieces stitched on Aida. They have a certain "charm", don't they?

If you keep it long enough it will be an antique...so enjoy it and think of the memories! Dianntha Happy Thanksgiving

Hang it up! It will remind you how far you have come. One of my favorite Christmas pieces I ever did was on aida cloth and I believe that it was done in 1985 or 1986. Happy Thanksgiving.

I have some of those as well. It's very cute and cheerful and perfect for the season!

Too funny! It's cute!
I have several things from my earliest stitching days...I will never part with them!

Oh I cringe when I see my old aida pieces! lol! But guys don't understand, do they? Love all your current stitching -- and this one is nice too, even if it's on aida. Have a great Thanksgiving!
