Fiddler's Cloth and The Giveaway
Anyway, in my down time I have been doing some cross stitching because its easy from me to do with watching Henry in the evening. I have purchased some fantastic patterns from Primitivebettys and Country Rustic Primitives. I will be posting the finished little cupboard tucks soon.
As I was looking over these patterns, I found that some of the patterns recommended Fiddler's cloth. However, I had no idea what Fiddler's cloth was, so I did some searching. In case you don't know, Fiddler's Cloth is a very popular Aida with a homespun country look. It's a blend of 50% Cotton, 42% Polyester, and 8% Linen. This is a great cloth for primitive pieces because you get a more country feeling from Fiddler's cloth because it has lightly irregular threads. I like it because its also much softer than Aida. The only drawback with Fiddler's Cloth is that it doesn't come in a wide range of colors -- it only comes in tan shades with darker nubs within the fabric. If you are looking for rustic cloth for cross stitching, I would recommend it!
Don't forget, my give away ends at midnight tonight! Good luck to you all. And yes! There will be a giveaway in December (just haven't decided yet what it might be, but it will have a cat theme!).
