I had a brainstorm idea this morning. (Watch out world!) I belong to several online stitching groups and each group has a questionaire asking about wish lists, likes, dislikes, etc. I find it time consuming to be typing the same things over and over, so I thought... Why not put it all in my blog, and then reference this entry? Good idea, eh? I thought so! So here goes:
Favorite fabric: 28/32ct evenweave/linen, hand-dyeds
Favorite needles: 26ct petite needles
Favorite Threads: Victoria Clayton Silks, GAST, Glissen Gloss Colorwash Silks, SSS (needed floss colors are in my wish list link below). Love specialty flosses.
Colors (include favorites & least favorites): Favorites: soft pretty colors such as pastels and lighter tans/mottled browns; Dislikes: dark, drab colors.
Themes (include favorites & least favorites): Likes: Fobs, Stitcher Accessories, Christmas ornaments; Least favorite: religious, folksy, abstract, fantasy, Celtic.
Magazines (include favorites & any that are subscriptions): Any UK mags, Stoney Creek , JCS
Favorite Designers: Miribilia, Joan Elliot, Bent Creek, Lizzie Kate as well as a few others.
Favorite Foods/Drink: ice tea (or flavored hot teas), cocoa, skittles, jelly belly jelly beans, Lindor chocolate, Ferrero Rocher chocolate
Collections (things you collect other than stitching): old cameras (I’m a photographer too)
Scents (include favorite & least favorite): My favorite scent is Lilac. I have allergies and asthma so strong scents don’t work for me.
