Stitcher's Five for the week of April 26th, 2004
1. Which do you prefer, Kits or Charts?
I prefer Kits.
Well, if the mood strikes that I'd like to start project it's always nice to have it all ready for me. I especially like it if the pattern calls for unusual or hard-to-get items.
3. How do you organise your materials before you stitch?
If I'm kitting the project myself, I put my floss in baggies on a ring. If it's already kitted, I will put the thread on a floss palette. I have a plastic butterfly that I like a lot, it doesn't wear down the floss like the cardboard ones can.
4. Do you do anything to the sides of your fabric before starting?
Sometimes I will zig zag the edges on my sewing machine, but I usually don't do anything with them.
5. What do you do with the leftovers when your done?
If it's silk or hand-dyed thread I'll put them in floss baggies with my other specialty threads. If it's DMC I'll either throw it away, if it's not much, or keep it with the chart.
