A wedding gift for Jerral and Sharon

This is my first cross stitch with beads. I chose pearl beads and the printed love background to match with the wedding sampler design.

Name and date was from the wedding invitation card as the final touch up.

Finish with white frame and warm wishes.
Care and share for one another, and you will have a love that stays sincere.

Need help - Red Chart #520

Need help.

Cassy is looking for a red chart #520, this is quite an old design - scenery view; a pond beside a park. Few wearing blue & maroon long gown ladies stroll in the park. Back at the scenery is a castle.

Grateful if anyone know where to look/buy chart as described above, leave your message in the comment column.

Many thanks.

How much is DMC thread - Part 2

Many thanks for the feedback. For easy reference, I have reconciled all comments in one page. RM1.40-RM1.50 per skein is the current price selling in Malaysia.

RM1.40 to RM1.45 in Subang and Petaling Jaya

It's RM1.50 in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

In Netherlands, a skein cost 1.35 from the store. However I buy DMC on the Internet for 36 cents a skein.
1.35 ANG = 2.38 MYR

Lady of Leisure:
I used to buy it for RM0.40 each DMC skeins ages ago.

I bought it at RM0.50 when I just started cross-stitching about 15 years ago. I remember the label was in gold colour with black colour coding. I still have those in my collection anyway. It costs RM1.40 per skein in Ipoh now.

Here in Seri Iskandar, Peark, I can still find some shops sell DMC thread around RM1.30-1.40. Some shops in Sitiawan sell at RM1.50

In Melbourne DMC thread selling for AUD0.89, about RM2.70

RM1.50 in Bangi. Back in 2005, it was RM1.10 when I was in Kuching

Phuong Vy
Here in Vietnam one DMC skein is 5000 to 5500 VND now (a little over 1/4 USD). It used to be only 3700 VND per skein just a year ago :(

5500 VND = 0.883556 MYR

its rm1.00 to rm1.20 in kulim,kedah

Where can I find cheaper the RM1.50 per skein?
