Q. The first request comes from Vash
(http://seasidestitcher.blogspot.com/) who is requesting pictures of the back of your stitching… are you brave enough to give this one a shot?
A. I didn't know which of my several WIPS to show, so I went with the one that best fit in my scanner... This is Women of the Mayflower. The face of the woman shows some action there, but that is just finishing off the thread and weaving it under lighter colored threads... you know what I mean :-) I will be honest with you, I am not real keen on people turning fabric over to look at the back. Well, no, I guess that doesn't bother me, as Sue and I were talking about today (she turned my GSS over to peek today, which didn't bother me). What bothers me is when folks offer or put the back of their stitching in your face unsolicited.
Q, The second request comes from Singular Stitches (http://singularstitches.blogspot.com/), and she is asking for "a pictorial tour of [the] special place that you go to create your wonderful stitched creations."
A. Here is my modest little area. Not much to be said about it - it is my little section of our finished off family room in the basement. My Ott-lamp is there and a nice end table with a front drawer that pulls out and I can put my ring of baggies of silk or floss on that for quick access... and you can see my Tacky Bobs (yes Sue, only two of them!) under my needlecase there... my scissors and ort jar... and Maalox and air freshener (Mike will smoke an occasional cigarette down here - oh, gross!!)... and stuff like that... laptop under the table... basic, wouldn't you say?
