Stitching Blogger's Question of the Week

Today’s SBQ was suggested by Dawn and is:

If you had to choose, would you rather spend money on overdyed floss or hand-dyed fabric?

I think this picture just about says it all. This is part of my collection of Vickie Clayton hand dyed silks. Eventually I want to collect them all. I used to have all of the Weeks Dye Works threads, though I haven't kept up with the new colors. I have a lot of GASTs, but am going to complete the collection with my latest order from an ONS. Yes, I do have a lot of hand dyed fabric, but I could trade it all for white and natural linen as long as I could collect hand dyed threads.

My husband decided to attend a seminar in Honolulu this Saturday. I am so glad that I decided to stay in Nevada (especially since I have jury duty starting Monday). His flight to San Francisco was delayed two hours at LAS and one hour on the tarmac with no gate in SFO. His flight to Honolulu this morning had a cracked windshield, so he took the next flight out . . . to Maui and now won't get from Maui to Honolulu until after 9 pm! I would be going crazy about now myself.

No Mandala picture today. Yes, there are more leaves done, but I am waiting to finish one whole pineapple before I take another picture. And this weekend is the Christmas Cross Stitch Ornament SAL. I really should find something Christmasy to stitch, but I might just skip this month. Then I could finish a pineapple and kit up something small to take with me to jury duty. Hope everyone has a great weekend. It's finally cooling down in Nevada. No more days over 110ºF and soon plenty of days under 100ºF.

I don't which I would choose! That's a hard choice!! DS has jury duty coming up also! Have a great weekend!

Flosses for me, too, no question.

You're lucky your courthouse still allows stitchery. Ours has banned any kind of sharp objects including knitting needles and (sigh)tapestry needles. I always end up grading papers all day. Eeeuuuuuwww.

Ooo, jury duty. Hopefully a good stitching opportunity if nothing else.

I don't know, somewhere around tteh cracked windshield I would have been swearing and figuring that the forcces were allied against my trip.

Ohhh, look at all the pretties! I like those silks, too. Do you belong to her floss of the month club?
