It's a thread eater. I had to re-thread the needle several times to complete the Aida Sampler, and for each time I felt I was wasting thread. I also noticed that it is hard to make leaf shaped patterns on Aida, that is why I just made a band. It looks good, but was tedious to make and used up a lot of thread that could have been used on another project.
Now for the pictures
