Question of the Week - So Cal Stitchers

I joined a Yahoo group (one of many) the other day called SoCal Stitchers - and can't wait to meet all of them. We have a "field trip" scheduled for June 7 - a get together at a LNS in Anaheim Hills. How exciting!

This group does a weekly question - and this week's question is:

Do you keep or give away most of your projects?

My intent is to do about half and half. I do a lot of "selfish" stitching - things that I want to keep for myself, such as Chatelaine's Alpine Seasons Garden Mandala and Raise the Roof's Crabby All Year. I like doing pieces that I can hang in my house or my RV. But then I also stitch to make gifts and exchanges. I stitch for my mother, my sisters, my brother, my friends, and for many strangers via charity quilt squares stitching (WOCS and CSFC). I like doing exchanges, so I stitch things for exchanges like biscornus, ornaments, and small pillows.

I have one stitched dog on my wall. I have given its' almost identical twin to my friend, who was in tears, when she got it.
