So at hobby lobby I saw this 14ct plastic canvas. Too good to be true?  I shall find out as I am starting a new project tomorrow.

Has anyone used this before and what were your experiences?  It says to use three strands for standard stitches.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

I haven't but I have always wanted to build something. Someone sent me a book with a bunch of patterns to try out. You could make little ornaments with it. Keep us posted on how you like it.

It's pretty cool for ornaments or other things you want to be stiff and cut out.  Smiley  have you ever used the perforated paper?  It is basically the same, but more durable.  Fun stuff! 
It also will hold up to beads added nicely.  I've done some stitching on the paper and enjoyed it.

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Make sure you use shorter thread lengths. Due to the plastic being more rough than fabric, the thread has a tendency to catch on the plastic and wind up shredding your floss.


Happy stitching!  Cool

Thanks for the heads up. I was having that problem. I'm almost done with the project and I'm excited to post up the pic soon.  I would have been done sooner but I have been dealing with my dog Darla and her leg. We go to the orthopedic surgeon on Monday. I will be cross stitching a storm then while waiting for the X-rays and consult with him. Who needs counseling I have cross stitching Wink

Tiff and Darla.
