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 ofunless I’m pulling items for a 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.
