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: Starting Over?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion of the Week is:

Do you have any projects that you have scrapped and start­ed over? What made you start over from scratch? I can only remem­ber one, and I restart­ed it at least twice, maybe three times. It was the Celtic Cross designed by Deb Davis for Y-Knot Designs. I […]

Still Thinging; Date Night

I am, in fact, still keep­ing up with Thing-a-Day! I need to go post over there, though. I do wish I could auto­mat­i­cal­ly cross-post, but if wish­es were fish­es and all that.

I stitched tonight while Sam and I gamed. I also wrote for a while, ear­li­er. Sam and I have recent­ly begun par­tic­i­pat­ing in […]

SBQ: What do you do while stitching?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion of the week is:

What is your favorite past time while stitch­ing? Do you just enjoy silence, lis­ten to music/audiobooks or do you “watch” TV/movies? Do you have spe­cif­ic favorites you lis­ten to/watch while stitch­ing?

I like gam­ing while stitch­ing, but I’m find­ing that it doesn’t work so well in one-on-one […]

Color Clues, or Why Four Blue Sweaters Isn’t Enough

Anoth­er blue sweater? You have four of those. Why not get some­thing dif­fer­ent for a change?” “No, I have navy, corn­flower, Williams­burg, and baby blue sweaters. This one is roy­al blue. That’s total­ly dif­fer­ent!” Okay guys, I know that you thought women were mak­ing up some of the col­or names we use. Char­treuse? Why not say green? And garnet—that’s red, right? What’s this about plum, amethyst, grape, vio­let, mauve, and fuschia all being dif­fer­ent? They’re all pur­ple, aren’t they? No, real­ly, they aren’t. We don’t make them up just to vex you. They’re all very, very dif­fer­ent, which is why we would nev­er con­sid­er wear­ing brick red lip­stick with a cher­ry red sweater. Ick! Now there’s help for you. Free help, even! […]

Stitching Bloggers’ Question of the Week: Fabric Organization?

I’ve been wait­ing eager­ly for this week’s SBQ. I don’t know why, I just have. They some­times remind me of stash I don’t think about often enough.

Do you have an orga­ni­za­tion­al sys­tem for your fab­ric? If so, what is it? If not, what do you store your fab­ric in?

How do peo­ple store their […]
