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: 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 […]

SBQ: Stitching weaknesses?

What is your cross stitch weak­ness? (i.e., What do you have to have when you see it, even if you are sup­posed to be on the Wag­on?) 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 […]

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 think […]

SBQ: Other crafts?

This week­end’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion: Are there oth­er crafts that you have tried and aban­doned? Why do you like stitch­ing bet­ter? Short ver­sion: Because it’s one of the few visu­al­­ly-beau­ti­­ful things I’ve ever been good at.
