Answer these Questions

Well, here are my answers to Jayne's questions and to follow below will be my list of 11 people and my questions:
  1. How do you feel about blended threads as in Teresa Wentzler's projects? (not a huge fan of them but I make due)
  2. Do you launder your project before framing? (usually)
  3. How do you feel about the lack of colour fast in all the flosses now? (not too fond of it)
  4. When you begin a project with a black and white chart how do you choose which symbol to begin with? (I usually start at the middle and start there)
  5. Do you do your own framing? (No - I am blessed to have a good friend to help with that!  Thanks, as always Jayne!)
  6. Do you choose your own mats and moldings or let someone else tell you what you would like? (I have my preferences but take in second opinions)
  7. Pins or Lace (undecided)
  8. Do you have any wall space for a new project? (Thankfully - yes)
  9. Have you ever gifted a finished piece right off your wall because someone really liked it? (No - but I wouldn't rule it out!)
  10. Would you stitch it again for yourself?
    (Depends on what it was)
