Hey folks,

I decided to do a little cross-stitch at work today.  The scan doesn't show the white very well as it really just blends into the 16-count white aida fabric in the end.  Do they make aida in different colors?

The design basically came from the arcade sprite sheet that you can find anywhere on the internets.

Thanks for checking it out!

Don't know Dig Dug, but he looks real fun Cheesy They make Aida in tons of brilliant colors! Multicolored too... I can't find a link just now, but I'll try to remember to look it up back home Smiley

Fantastic!  I'll have to go look for some the next time I'm at the fabric store.

I dunno if this problem hits you, but I want to buy more thread even though I don't "need it".

>Do they make aida in different colors?

Yeap, lots and lots of colours. You get the usual mix of red, green, black, creams and then you can get some real odd ones. There is also aida that dissolves in water so you can cross stitch on normal clothes Smiley

It's called "hoarding", I think mostly everyone on craftster does it Cheesy Since I do multiple crafts, I have issues with hoarding materials for crafts I barely ever do! >_>

Here we go, these people have the most amazing embroidery cloth I've ever seen... Haven't ordered from them, but I'm really tempted, even though I barely ever cross stitch!
