SBQ: Overdyed Floss or Hand-dyed Fabric?

I’m quite late with the cur­rent Stitch­ing Blog­ger’s Ques­tion, which is: If you had to choose, would you rather spend mon­ey on overdyed floss or hand-dyed fab­ric? Overdyed floss, cer­tain­ly. I’ve only pur­chased one piece of hand-dyed fab­ric, and nobody is like­ly to go, “Oh, wow!” about the effect in the fin­ished piece (although I’m happy, […]

SBQ: What do you do with oorts?

The cur­rent Stitch­ing Blog­ger’s Ques­tion is: What do you do to your thread clip­pings? Do you just scrap them or do you use them in some­thing else? I throw them away, as I don’t know what else I would do with them. The only pos­si­ble use I know of is a vague mem­o­ry of some­one on RCTN using […]

SBQ: Balance?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week (real­ly last week) is: How do you bal­ance your stitch­ing time with your oth­er oblig­a­tions such as work, house­hold chores, etc.? That isn’t real­ly an issue for me, as I haven’t been stitch­ing late­ly. I real­ly need to go buy some floss so I can get past a stumbling […]

SBQ: Stitching Publications

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week: Do you cur­rent­ly sub­scribe to any stitch­ing pub­li­ca­tions or have you in the past? (Either in print or online) If so, which ones? I don’t sub­scribe to any at the moment, and I rarely buy them off the rack. I have hun­dreds of them in my stash, and I keep […]

SBQ: Sick of a WIP?

The Stitch­ing Blog­ger’s Ques­tion of the Week is: Do you ever get to a point work­ing on a project that you’ve had for so long, you start to won­der what pos­sessed you to start it in the first place? Of course! It has always hap­pened with pat­terns I chose to do for some­one else, though, rather than those […]

SBQ: Stitching Terms/Acronyms

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week: For sea­soned stitch­ers: Define a stitch­ing term or acronym for new stitch­ers. Gah. I don’t play in the needle­work news­group any­more, so I don’t think in acronyms. Rail­road­ing is the only term that I can think of that was­n’t obvi­ous or explained in a pat­tern’s instruc­tions. There’s a decent […]

SBQ: Family Heirlooms

And anoth­er Stitch­ing Blog­ger Ques­tion of the week, which should leave me all caught up: Do you have any pieces that you would liked passed on to future gen­er­a­tions as fam­i­ly heir­looms? At one time, I thought so. My moth­er has a Tigerlily piece I did for her, and my father has a big Marine […]

SBQ: Blended Threads

And anoth­er Stitch­ing Blog­ger Ques­tion: How do you han­dle blend­ed threads? Do you kit the blends up before you start a piece, or do you grab what col­ors you need and blend when the need aris­es? If you kit up the blends before­hand, how do you store them? Do you have anoth­er option for blends to share? I […]

SBQ: Most Complicated Piece?

I’m behind on the Stitch­ing Blo­qqer Ques­tions, so I’ll do them for the next few days. What is the most com­pli­cat­ed piece you’ve ever com­plet­ed? I’m try­ing to fig­ure out how to judge how com­pli­cat­ed some­one else would judge a piece to be. Size? Dif­fer­ent types of stitch­es? Embell­ish­ments? For sheer cussed­ness, though it was worth […]
