SBQ of the Week

I'm done with the flowers at least for now. :) Who would have thought my favorite flower (magnolias) would be such a pain in the rump to stitch?!



This week's (8/21) SBQ is:

If you had to choose, would you rather spend money on over dyed floss or hand-dyed fabric?

My answer to this one is easy....hand dyed-fabric (to be exact opalescent fabrics..lol). I generally just stitch with DMC. With that being said I do have to admit I will buy over dyed floss for small projects (usually monochromatic designs) but it is usually a visibly variegated color. I love the look of variegated designs!

This made me realize that when I stitch a piece it is usually floss or fabric and not both. Hmmm....could it be the scrooge in me? lol

Enjoy your day!

That is looking so pretty, and I love the fabric form you found for the Britty Kitty design you finished earlier, it was perfect for it.
