SBQ Meme Catch-Up: Exchanges & The Last Happy Dance

Seems I’ve fallen behind – O Well, here goes……

May 10, 2007 - Exchanges

This week’s SBQ was suggested by Ish and is:

How do you choose a project for an exchange?
Do you pick solely on what you know of the taste of the recipient or
are there other reasons you pick the piece you do?

Well this one’s simple enough to answer. I’ve never participated in an exchange. That might be changing though, as I'm tentatively going to join a Harry Potter Exchange over on EzBoard.com For this summer in timing with the release of book 7. Although I could chicken out at the last minute and drop out.







May 16, 2007 - The Last Happy Dance

This week’s SBQ was suggested Juls and is:

If you could only stitch one more piece what would it be and why?

WOW, as Renée states - a loaded question – indeed! And I too was in a quandary whether or not to answer it.
I have so many kits and leaflets, how in the world was I to decided? And then it came to me – who was the first designer that gave me this incurable stitching addiction in the first place? Why Teresa Wentzler of course! [grin]
And of the first 5 TW kits that I bought back in 1996 “Peacock Tapestry” was my jaw dropping favorite, and still is. In the now 12 years since its release I had always hoped to stitch it, but the hand drawn chart did cause me concern. So I waited, hoping that Leisure Arts would republish the chart in a computer generated layout (Like with “Camelot Sampler” my 2nd favorite). Which doesn’t seem to be coming into fruition. Anyway, since there isn’t a time limitation to this last piece scenario I choose “Peacock Tapestry” as my Last Happy Dance and plan a very lengthy stitching duration lasting a good few years. [grin]
What the hey, I started “Camelot Sampler” back in March 2001 and I’m still working on it!

You CAN finish Peacock Tapestry. Our local LNS in Las Vegas has a completed model. And my friend Elayne stitched it last year for a Christmas gift to a friend who makes dolls. It's more than I would take on. :-) But have at it!
