6 Fat Man and a new blog game to play along...

ok since I haven't been working on this project at all it is now considerate a UFO. I need it done before July 13th ahhhhh. So I will be off the Sal I think so I can stitch it more.

There is a new question game going around the blogs and I am fortunate to be tag by two people so I have 22 questions to answer and 11 tag to answer my questions. Seems like fun lets see if I can do this between the baby crying for attention lol.

ok questions from Jayne

  1. How do you feel about blended threads as in Teresa Wentzler's projects? (hate blended threads especially with krenik)
  2. Do you launder your project before framing? (yes, unless its overdyed threads)
  3.  How do you feel about the lack of colour fast in all the flosses now?(its not good if you end up with a dirty project and can't clean it)
  4. When you begin a project with a black and white chart how do you choose which symbol to begin with? (usually I start with the symbol that has the most and in the same area so I don't have to jump)
  5. Do you do your own framing? (some i do, some I had a shop do> some a friend does)
  6. Do you choose your own mats and moldings or let someone else tell you what you would like? (I choose but take suggestions
  7. Pins or Lace (pins if I do it, prefer lace though just don't know how yet)
  8. Do you have any wall space for a new project? (some but not much)
  9. Have you ever gifted a finished piece right off your wall because someone really liked it? (nope)
  10. Would you stitch it again for yourself?
  11. Do you have a group of friends whom share the love of stitching with you on a regular basis? (we gather weekly and love every minute of it)((The Stitching Sisters))

4.  How often do you try to stitch a week?  (every day if possible)

7.  Do you have favourite stores to buy stitching from?  (123 stitch and nordic needle, the silver needle)
