A Finish! Woohoo! And a Survey...

Hello All!  I stayed up super late last night so I could finish up my RR block.  Super happy to say that Winter Queen is done!

And here is a picture of the whole Round Robin before it was mailed off to the last stitcher:

I have some threads for Buttercup on order so I've decided to start on the Pirate Treasures Map for The Husband.  Here is the floss toss with the fabric I dyed for it. 

I know some of the colors blend but I think it will be ok anyway.  I'm going to start it this weekend.

And now for a survey.  Please answer in the comments.  I'll post the results in my next post.  I'm hoping to get 100 answers so we have a really good sample!

1.  What type of needles do you like using the most?
2.  Q-snaps, scroll rods, hoops, or in hand?
3.  What are your favorite scissors?
4.  Do you save your orts?  If yes, in what type of container?
5.  What type of needle threader do you use if you use one?
6.  Do you use a pin cushion?
7.  Do you have a favorite special tool?
8.  Do you use highlighters to highlight your chart?  Something different?  Nothing at all?
9.  Do you use a special type of light?
10.  Is there anything special you HAVE to have with you or near you when you stitch?  Something you can't stitch without?

Thank you so much for participating in the survey! 

I'm organizing a retreat for fans of Mirabilia Designs.  If you love Mirabilia/ Nora Corbett, please check out the Mira Minions Retreat Webpage.

Wow! It's Been Too Long...

... Since I've posted!

I've been working steadily on my RR block, Winter Queen...

It seems like the dress took forever!  I'm hoping that now I can make some quicker progress working on her face and hair. 

I've barely worked on Buttercup.  I've decided to change her completely to NPI and Splendor silks and until I am still frogging all of the dmc.  Hoping to have a small finish pic to post this time next week.
