I was going through my e-mails yesterday, trying to clean it up a bit (I have way, way too many e-mails stored in program) and found an SBQ I didn’t answer. Have no fear though, it is still fairly recent. This one is from March 5 and has been recycled from January 4, 2005:
After you stitch a pattern or kit, what do you do with it?
It really depends on the pattern. Most of the time I try to use a working copy so I can trade the original for another, and some times I just give it away to someone else who was wanting to stitch it. I have been told my brother and sister are becoming quite the stitchers (my brother especially) and I imagine most of my patters will be mailed west to him from this point on.
I don’t generally stitch a pattern again, unless it is a motif or something that multiple people will like. So I just pass it on!
