Today’s SBQ was suggested by Jennifer and is:
What are your favorite online stitching supply sources?
Well I don’t do a ton of online shopping, although it is my only source for most of my supplies now that my LNS has shut down. I do browse a lot, then when I need something I usually request it from Ann at Knowledge and Needles. Not only is Ann a good friend but she offers free shipping!
I am just starting to really get interested in specialty threads (overdyes and the like), and for that I find Jenna at One Star’s Light has a nice selection. Plus she is a good friend. Notice a pattern? 😀
This week’s SBQ was suggested by Ternezia and is:
What for you means to achieve mastery as a stitcher?
Speaking of TW, I have made some wonderful progress on the Egyptian Sampler:
If the rest of this piece goes this smoothly, this is likely a piece that I would stitch again. There are certainly motifs that are fantastic and each part stitches very quickly.
I have also started a poncho for myself. The pattern is here and my progress:
I found something to make with all that blue yarn that I bought that was the wrong colour. 😉 I will still make one in beige but since I have this yarn now, why not?
Oh! And guess what I did yesterday? I bought envelopes! Why is this important? Well, I haven’t mailed off my PIF pieces since I had no envelopes. So hopefully you will see pictures of those soon.
That’s it for today. I am off to do the last of my house cleaning that I have been putting off since we are celebrating Thanksgiving today with Scott’s grandparents as I was working most of last weekend (Thanksgiving was on Monday here in Canada). Which hopefully will mean turkey sandwiches, turkey hash, etc. for the remainder of the week! Yum!
