It seems I am a bit behind on the SBQ’s. So…
Today’s SBQ was suggested by Ish and is:
What has been your most challenging project and why?
So far it has been Dragon Ride by TW:
This was my first Teresa Wentzler piece and the first linen project as well as the first blended threads project. I really jumped in with both feet!
Today’s SBQ was suggested Jennifer and is:
How do you store your WIPs and other projects that you have kitted up?
I don’t actually kit up my projects. I have my fabric all stored in ziploc bags in a rolling file drawer and my floss in floss boxes. I use the same floss boxes for all my projects. I do this because if you have ever had more than one TW on the go you know that there are certain colours (420, 501 anyone) that she uses in most of her projects. Since I am a floss miser and I hate to go out and buy multiples of the same colour, I use the same box for all my projects. In my to-go bag, then (since that seems to be the only time I have to stitch these days), is my floss, my needle & scissors tin and my qsnaps, so all I have to do is just grab my project of the day.
In other news I am slowly going insane. Kimber’s teacher called us yesterday afternoon and invited us to come to the school Monday morning for an awards ceremony. “And that is all I am going to say on that,” was all she said. Gah!
Kimber is an extremely intelligent girl. We have already proven here at home that she is smarter than me, constantly thinking outside the box – in fact I don’t even think she is aware of a box. Her teacher tells me that she is constantly trying to find ways of challenging her – Kimber finds all standard grade two concepts too easy. So needless to say I am quite excited for her. Now Scott points out she is only in grade two – most of the parents in the class probably got the same phone call. Regardless, I still am a beaming proud mommy!
