I got this fun list from stitcherybutchery on tumblr

 

  1. How long have you been stitching?
  • Since I was 14. My brother’s friend showed me how, and I derped my way through it! It was a cat on a window. I remember I gave it to my friend. I must have bought it as a kit at the local craft store. (Anyone else remember Winn’s?) I’ve been hooked ever since!!
  1. What’s your favorite finished piece?
  • It’s a tie between this sampler

and this lady

  1. When and where do you typically stitch?
  • Literally anywhere I can! But mostly at home at the kitchen table. Or at my kids sports practice.
  1. What kind or music do you like to listen to while stitching?
  • Audio books or scary stories on youtube if I’m not home, or Netflix at home.
  1. How many pieces are you working on now? Lol! Truth time! Um…9..no, 10:
  • Dr Who sampler
  • blackwork sampler
  • Snooze
  • Happily Ever After SAL (2nd one for me)
  • Steotch 2018 SAL
  • Space Unicorn
  • I love bats sampler
  • Winchester House
  • Winter Ride

Those are the ones I’ve started but haven’t finished. I’m actively working on Dr Who, Steotch, and the blackwork sampler.

  1. How many boxes, bags, and other containers do you have holding unused floss and cloth?
  • I recently consolidated all that from a big bin to 6 containers, including fabric and floss. I put fabric and patterns in a briefcase, favorite patterns in a file folder, floss in a little 3 drawer plastic box, my active WIPs are in a large project bag, others are in another bag, and a couple small active WIPs are in a smaller work bag.
  1. Do you have any other crafty/artsy hobbies?
  • Oh yeah, one’s not enough. Knitting, crochet, writing, diamond art/painting, tatting, drawing, and coloring.
  1. Any unrelated hobbies? (sports, music, etc)
  • Reading, tsum tsum collecting, watching movies
  1. Have you ever made pieces as a gift for someone else? Who?
  • So many gifts for so many people! I lost track. My parents have the most. I stitched a few puppy and southwest items for them over the years.
  1. How/where do you get your patterns?
  • Online (such as Etsy, weelittlestitches, Frosted Pumpkin) Dimensions kits, books….I especially love indie designers!
  1. Do you follow any other stitchers on tumblr or elsewhere you’d recommend?
  • Yes!
