Today's SBQ was suggested by Danielle and is:
What company produces your favorite hand-dyed fabric? Are there any companies whose hand-dyed fabric you do not like? If so, why?

"Stitched with Love and Cat Hair"
My Answer: I don't usually used hand-dyed fabrics. I do look forward to reading posts from stitchers who do!!
I enjoyed reading Katrina's blog AND Chelle's Blog posts re. goals & organization in their stitching. Which sparked other bloggers comments & posts. I love it when bloggers chime in & share their thoughts+ideas.
Leah asked about the finishing of my project [previous post]. The outside edge is the usual, make back stitches all the way around [front & back linen pieces] and whip stitch them together. For the other ... looks like quilting: It is a simple running stitch made around the design. I use a sharp needle and stitch from the front straight thru the back and tighten. If you hold the project on edge - you can easily manage the stitches. The secret, of course is keeping the stitches even. I've done this a few times.
I'm stitching this freebie with DMC floss on 32-count linen. Pattern can be found here
