Thread organization: plastic bobbins, yes or no? How do you organize your threads?
I have done the bobbin thing, I have done the Floss away bag thing.....The way to go is the Stitch bow system by DMC. Trust me. I still have some (3 boxes worth!) bobbins that I inherited, and am trying to use up. The conversion from floss away to stitch bow was easy and with the bows in a binder it makes it easy to store (less space) and easy to find what I need...and no winding either.
p.s. don't buy the stitchbow binder it is a waste of $ ...you can use any D ring binder from a office supply store. The travel bag is a good investment, I like it.
And last weeks:
Would you or have you designed your own cross stitch design? If you have can we see it?
Yes,I did one in college, I painstakingly converted my sorority (PKX....local and now disbanded) shield into a cross stitch. By way of graph paper before software existed for this stuff. I stitched and framed it and gave it to my little sister to pass down my family tree. I left a note on the back saying that it was to be returned to me if the tree ever ended, well after the sorority disbanded...I asked where it was and it seemingly got lost. If anyone in PA sees a purple and white shield for the PKX (Rho Kappa Chi) sorority hanging on someones wall...you have my permission to steal it and contact me. I will compensate you well, mu hahaha.
I think I have the ratty piece of graph paper around here somewhere......If I ever find it AND If i ever get a scanner ....then you can see it
