Stitching pictures

I had an urge to stitch pink! LOL So, I stitched up some Valentine designs...

For my sister, I stitched up a SanMan design and finished it into a pinkeep.

From top, clockwise: Dragonfly Stitches "2009 Be My Valentine", Charland Designs "Heart Scissor Fob"; The Drawn Thread "All you need is Love"; Mosey 'n Me "All Buttoned Up"; and Elizabeth's Designs "Love". They were all gifted to stitchers!

And, I stitched up a SanMan design 'A Cup of Winter', finished it into a flatfold, and sent it down to Sharon. I included some hot chocolate, chocoalate treats, and some winterfresh gums.

Other than that... I've been stitching on monthly designs for my kitchen calendar holder, (need to get some pictures of those), and a LHN design, and my projects for the spring exchange.

Camp Stitch-a-lot is in 16 days, and I have to finish up my name tag and decide what to pack! I am soooo excited about camp this year. I need to get away from the daily stuff at home for a few days.

Thanks for looking, and Happy Stitching!

I really enjoyed the shamrock / clover "box" you did. That is really a great pc.
I am new to the world of stitching and have been browsing various blogs to try and gain some knowledge and get some tips / ideas. I originally started with a stamped, then counted “kits”. I’m working on my 2nd chart and have noticed some big differences in floss types and quality.
My Cross Stitch Mentor has told me that I’m ready to graduate from Aida, but I really like Aida. Maybe it’s just beginner’s comfort???
If you would answer my question… What type of fabric or fabrics do you prefer and why? Brands and counts?
I would appreciate any advice, thanks!
