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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 any more, 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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

SBQ: Essential Needlework Gear

Yay! Anoth­er Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion:

What items do you con­sid­er essen­tial to your needle­work that you keep in your stitch­ing bag

The pat­tern, fab­ric and ring of floss cards for my cur­rent project, the scroll bars or QSnaps or hoop or what­ev­er I’m using (I sel­dom stitch in hand), and a long sil­ver chain on […]

SBQ: Print it out or stitch from screen?

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion is:

When you stitch a pat­tern that you have down­loaded do you print out the pat­tern or do you stitch direct­ly from your com­put­er screen?

I don’t remem­ber actu­al­ly stitch­ing any of the many pat­terns I’ve down­loaded. The­o­ret­i­cal­ly, though, I’m sure I’d print them out, and prob­a­bly put the […]

SBQ: What do you do with completed patterns?

This week’s ques­tion is the first of some recy­cled ques­tions. It was first asked back in 2005, and I don’t think I even knew about SBQ then, so I doubt that I’ve answered it before.

After you stitch a pat­tern or kit, what do you do with it?

I’ve done so few kits that they […]
