50 shades of 14ct gray aida, that is. I had no idea Zweigart made that many shades of gray. Straight-up grays with warm or cool undertones, grays that think they are browns, blues that think they are gray, green that's not sure whether it's green or brown or gray. Also some straight up greens and an interesting tweedy green Rustico. Yes, I've been cleaning out the stash box again, and I have a ton of remnants of discontinued colors of 14 ct aida for your stitching pleasure. Most of them are irregular remnants of one or two-yard cuts that were partly used for stitching cover models for our publications. I'm currently selling them as is but I am willing to cut them down into two pieces if you don't want quite all of it (and admittedly some of the pieces are pretty big, given that the original cut averaged 60 inches wide by 1-2 yards.) Also be aware that these are all discontinued colors, so once they are gone, they're gone. There's a couple of my favorite colors in there, BTW; the Misty Blue was one of my go-to colors for landscapes and seascapes, and the pewter is a really nice all-purpose neutral that is likewise one of my go-to colors. I'm really sorry they don't make them anymore. I also have a warm yellowed-gray and an olive drab that are really excellent for military patterns, for those who may be stitching pieces for active military or veterans. (Convo me if you are!)

Keep in mind that the free shipping offer (coupon code AWA) is still in effect, so if you've got holiday gifts you plan on stitching, now's the time to snag the fabric at a great price and get going a little early. Come on over and have a look: I've also got my usual assortment of baby bibs and other gifts, as well as assorted housewares, still available, so if you've got a baby shower, housewarming or hostess gift in mind, there's something for you as well. See you there!

It's called "I Can Cross Stitch" and is available through Annie's Publishing. It's a basic instructional book for tweens and teens with some fun projects on a variety of fabrics and products. (It SAYS "17 designs" but in fact it is 17 projects with a total of 27 designs. Or at least I did 27 designs; not saying if they all made the cut.) They range from little things like push pin covers and Altoid tins to purses and pillows.I don't know if it is in stores yet but you can get it online here:… and probably Amazon and other places as well. It's also available as an electronic download.

I had a lot of fun designing this book and I think any beginning stitcher will enjoy learning with it. I tried to make all the projects very fun and funky but not overwhelming. There are a lot of little things that are quick to make and easy to learn on. I personally recommend starting with the perforated paper designs (a sheet of perf paper is included with the book) as stitching on perf paper can be much easier than fabric (you can see the holes really well) and it teaches you important skills like keeping your tension from getting too tight (you'll crumple the paper if you don't!) All of the designs are basic whole stitches and most take very few colors. As you learn and progress, you can work up to larger designs with more color changes. It's a book that grows with your experience.

If you've ever wanted to learn to cross stitch but found most patterns either too complicated or too childish and dull, give these a shot. And let me know what you think!

Hello crafters!
I've started making jewellery and want to begin selling it, but I'm unsure about setting prices for my art and so on. I'd be really grateful if some of you could give me some tips and even suggest some prices you would be willing to pay. 
You can see an example here: {Online Etsy and eBay shop}

Thank you for your help
