SBQ & other things

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

Hi! Been following your blog recently! Looking forward to seeing your work on herb garden. Love the freebie!

Annemarie said...

Wonderful stitching on the freebie. I hardly ever use overdyed/hand dyed floss either. Just plain old DMC.

Love the freebie, it's too cute. I agree, I really enjoy reading blogs and getting all that feedback, it's so fun!
