I tagged myself & SBQ

In an effort to wind down after work (it wasn’t a good night, but I won’t go into that right now, or I’ll go back to focusing on it again), here’s another series of questions/answers I grabbed from Annette’s blog. I think I may have answered something similar when I first started blogging, but here goes anyway …

And now for the SBQ …

Today’s SBQ was suggested by Vash and is:

“Which way do you stitch, i.e. do you stitch /// followed by \\\ on top, or the other way around \\\ followed by ///? Are you left-or right-handed and do you think that this affects the way that you stitch?”

I stitch /// then \\\ … probably because when I was teaching myself the little kit showed it done that way in the instructions, and I continued the same way ever since. I can’t say it has anything to do with being right-handed at all, just that I didn’t know any other way back then …
