SBQ

Weellll I've got a headache tonight, it could possibly elevate to migraine status ... if it wants to. For the first time in four weeks I trained at Taekwon-Do. That was nice, well see how my foot feels tomorrow.

Last night I finished row 3 on Montreal Sampler by Jeannette Douglas and made good progress on row 4. If I'm lucky, with what little time tonight I might finish row 4.

I had a question from Liz on my last post : Q - Must confess that I haven't heard of Jeannette Douglas, not sure if she is available in England. The picture that you have posted of something is really gorgeous, is that a JD design?

Gosh Liz, I'm not sure if JD is available for purchase in the UK or not, but you could easily order her designs online from North American Shops. Here's a link to her website for you to check out her awesome designs. Yes the picture I posted is JD's Montreal Sampler.

Now time for SBQ...
Q :Do you or have you stitched with over-dyed threads? (Weeks Dye Works,The Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Six Strand Sweets, etc.) If so, what is your opinion concerning them? If not, why not?

A : Oh baby, yeah I use over-dyed threads! They're getting harder and harder to avoid these days, so many designers are making use of them. Having stitched Chatelaines and Jeannette Douglas Designs I've worked a lot with them and many of their designs are exclusively overdyed threads. Sometimes if a design needs a little pizazz I'll add in some overdyed threads. I think by now I've used most of the threads on the market.

Sorry about your headache - hope it didn't migrate into a migraine and you are okay now?
