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 hardly count. I think I have just about every pattern I’ve ever stitch, though. I wish I had photos of all the items I’ve stitched from those patterns! I guess hanging on to the pattern is a memoir, of sorts, as I’m very unlikely to stitch most things more than once.

This week’s SBQ:
When you get a project professionally framed do you get glass inserted into the frame? Why or why not?
I’ve posted some notes from an attempt to save one piece that was not framed with glass. I was a teen, in high school, and didn’t see a need for glass at the time.
My father smokes, and that piece isn’t ever going to really come clean after 25 years of hanging in his den. I was suprised that I managed as well as I did.
So now, yes, I get glass every time. While I don’t smoke and won’t (can’t, even if I wanted to, due to allergies and asthma) live with anyone who does, I find it important to protect the pieces. You can’t always predict where one will end up, and after I’ve put so much love into something, it’s worth a few more dollars to add the glass.
