I’m supposed to go telling my weaknesses, in public?
Well, I guess I’ve already exposed them, considering the lists on my site. I adore “different” patterns. If it jumps out from all the cutesy crap, I want it. Celtic knotwork is another one. I haven’t seen too many good pagan designs, so when I do, I pay attention.
I have a nearly-full set of DMC. The sweetest thing husband v.1 ever did was complete my collection. I think a few new colors have been released in the last couple of years that I don’t have yet, but unless they’re required for something I stitch, I’m unlikely to worry about them much. I do enjoy looking at them, though. So pretty! I wish I could think of a way to store them so I could see them all the time, without exposing them to dust or spills.
Specialty fibers, though—I want! Silks and hand-dyed threads are nearly impossible for me to resist. I have to stay away from those areas of Nease’s unless I’m pulling items for specific design.
I’ve been stitching more lately, since I’ve been watching Dexter with Katie and The Dresden Files with Sam. I’m still working on the Fairy Tale Sampler, and doing a lot of frogging. I really need to get a magnifier attachment for my Ott Lite.
