It's all over but the mailing


 WOW that was intense!  Thank you all, you got bargains!  That doesn't happen too often for stitchers.  Hope you are as pleased with your purchases as I am, I think you will be. Good thing I had them in individual bags marked with their number.  Good thing the number was embedded in the photo because I messed up and was off one bag number after 22.  Twilight zone moment until I realized my mistake and all was corrected.  It was hard letting them go.  So will my next project be a PS Santa?  We'll see because putz here gave away many of them.  I need to check my stash.  I had a few favorites of that group and some weren't Schoolers.  Question is, what do I stitch them on?  I really like the neat look of Aida, gave that away too.  I may have a small piece of 18 left.  Margaret (A Sampler of Stitches) gifted me with a P.S. on Davos and maybe I should continue with that.  I need to choose something soon.
 
Just wanted to say thanks and the seller is pleased that they went to homes of needleworkers.  He had two large boxes of other pieces, not all Christmas, and they sold at the estate sale.  There were so many others and downsizing was necessary.  I believe these were the last she stitched and were never displayed.
 
It's very cold here, good day to go through the stash again.
Stay warm!
Thanks again.

Why not try stitching on an evenweave such as Murano or Lugana. I use this a lot especially for framed pieces and use 28 count when stitching over one. I could send you a piece to try if you like.

That was a kind gesture on your part, I'm sure it was a lot of work. I may try Aida again, perhaps a 16 ct. I see what you mean about the stitches being crisper.

I have stitched mine on different things...but the ones on my PS tree is on the Davos and to me, it's the perfect medium. They did get a bargain. I know the owners will appreciate your gorgeous work.
