A Happy Dance and Some SBQ's

This is Dream Tree by M Designs completed today. It was done with Passion waterlilies thread and I can't remember the name of fabric. I haven't quite decided what I am going to do with it. It's nice to have another finish though. I hope everyone has a good stitchy weekend.

This weeks (Sept. 28) SBQ is suggested by Lee and is:

As we all know, stitching in the winter can really be rough on the hands. What do you do to treat your hands well in the cold winter months? Do you have any suggestions for creams or soaps? Or perhaps a special regimen that you would like to share?

I have no special regimen. I just make sure to clean my hands and try to make sure there is no oil on them when I stitch. I usually use a shea butter lotion.

This weeks( Oct 18) SBQ is suggested by Vash and is:

Which way do you stitch, i.e. do you stitch /// followed by \\\ on
top, or the other way around \\\ followed by ///? Are you left- or
right-handed and do you think that this affects the way that you stitch?

I am right handed and I stitch /// followed by \\\. I have tried to stitch the other way when stitching over one, but I find it very difficult to do so.
