Wish List, Likes, Dislikes...


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:

FAVORITES

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.

Needle in a Haystack (NiaH) is my LNS...isn't it great!? I'll be heading there tomorrow to take a class. I love that place...

I don't know if you like to stitch HAED's but I found two, while I was writing down my enormous wish list. The fist one is Moon Maidens by Ruth Sanderson, and the second, which I think is just absolutely stunning if Turandot by Kinuko V. Craft Arts. Just take a peek when you get a chance.

SSS = Six Strand Sweets? If so, what colors are you looking for? Also, I think I have some DMC plastic bobbins I can send to you.
