SBBC exchange has landed

I can share one of my exchange pieces that i have recently stitched and sent off to Ulla from the SBBC group. Ulla had LHN's Caffe Latte on her wish list, so i chose that chart to stitch for her. I stitched it on some coffee dyed/baked fabric (thought it was appropriate for the theme) and made it into a flat-fold. This was a fun stitch and my 2nd attempt at a flat-fold.

Hi Karen,
Very cute, love it as a flat fold! I'm stitching that series on 40 over two but hadn't decided how to finish them yet.

Looks difficult??? 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!
