A Mini HD and Catching up on SBQ's



This is Goddess Heart by Enchanted Needle. A really quick simple stitch that just appealed to my general sense of funkiness. I haven't quite decided how to finish. I wanted to thank you all for the lovely comments on my flat folds. They are much appreciated and I hope to finish many more things. If anyone of you fabulous stitchers have any tips on scissor fobs I would love to have them. Now on to the SBQ's.

Today's SBQ 8/30/06 was suggested by Carolyn
and is:

How do you share your finished pieces with others? Do you frame them,
scan and/or photograph them, or do you have another method that you
would like to share?

The way I usually share my finishes is in person with my friends,family, and stitching friends. Now, if I am giving it away. I usually frame my finishes. Now that I am blogging, I always photograph my finishes and place online. I would eventually like to do an album with pictures of all my finishes

Today's SBQ 9/21/06 was suggested by
Elisabeth and is:

How many pieces have you stitched? Out of these, how many have been
for you? How many have had specialty stitches or other techniques
besides cross stitch?

In the six years I have been stitching, I have completed 38 pieces. I have given 7 pieces away. Maybe one or two had a Smyrna stitch, but no other stitches that I recall.
However, I am aiming to branch out.

Today's SBQ was suggested by Me and is:

When you find yourself making a lot of mistakes in various stitching
projects do you find it better to muddle your way through or do you
take a brief break from stitching? If you do take a break, how long do
you take?

I have found it better just to forge ahead. If I get frustrated, I will put it down for awhile. Sometimes I am just tired and I pick it up again the next day. It sometimes depends on how close I am to finishing the project. I have a UFO from 2 years ago that I just picked up again. I got so frustrated that I just couldn't work on it. I haven't had a real break in stitching besides a few days for a long time now.

Lovely heart :) As for the scissor fob, Annette has just recently posted a tutorial, and it's the same way I do mine - it's very easy to follow :)

Sharon: I've enjoyed visiting your blog this a.m.

Your pinkeep, pillows, heart design & flat folds are awesome. [I think the cat one is very cute]

How is the Quaker Garden doing?

Enjoy the day

That is a great little design!

As for fobs... I don't know any hints... I fumble thru putting them together!

What a cute piece, I just love that!

I love that little heart design! As for stitching and mistakes: I think mistakes lend character to a piece, so I always leave them, unless there is no way the design will work out when I leave them.
