Well good for you! It's wise to find destressors with all the stress areas in your life and we are thrilled that you find cross stitch a destressor! And you have your eye on quilting too? Wonderful!

There is absolutely NOTHING wrong with using 14 ct Aida... it's a basic

Welcome also to the world of cross stitch. I started with needlepoint and then went to cross stitch because I hate stitching the background. I then moved on to various other techniques like pulled thread. I am now back doing needlepoint and some cross stitch. It can be addictive! But so much fun. I work on linen as well as aida. You might try some 18 count aida as that has a pretty nice feel to it and it can be quite detailed.

Where do you get your threads and fabric? Carol posts interesting things in the embroidery folder so make sure you look there.
