A Stitchy Meme!

I saw Riona answering these on her blog, and I thought what a great blog entry for today!  They originally come from Andie's blog.

1. What are you stitching at the moment?

Teresa Wentzler's Byzantine Ornaments, currently working on ornament #1
2. How many finishes have you had this year? Small? Medium? Large? Extra Large?
I have 28 finishes so far this year.  I've got at least 2 big finishes, a few medium and a lot of smalls!
3. Do you think you will finish any more in the next month and a half before the end of the year?
Yes, I hope to finish all the Byzantine ornaments and in an ideal world I'd love to finish Art Deco Spirits, that will depend on how busy my Christmas Break gets.
4. If you could buy 1 thing for yourself what would it be? (Doesn't have to be stitching)
Hmmm I don't know, the latest thing on my "to get" list was a new point and shoot digital camera... which I treated myself to on Wednesday night.  I wold love some higher end lenses for my D-SLR with image stabilization.

5. What is the best thing you have ever stitched?
Teresa Wentzler's Peacock Tapestry... I stitched it in under a year!

6. Do you like making lists?
I luuuuuv lists!!!
7. Do you stitch in rotation (how does it work?) or OAAT?
I'm a One At A Time girl, I do also always have an ornament on the go, but I don't count that as a rotation as the ornament is a travel project.

8. What is the next thing you plan to stitch?
Enchantment of Winter by Terrance Nolan

9. What is your fave ONS? And why?
I like to try to use Knowledge and Needles, and if Ann doesn't have an item in stock and can't get it I tend to go with Stitching Bits and Bobs if I'm not in a rush.  I know Ann personally and she always does her best to get you what you're looking for.  Stitching Bits and Bobs has great sales, slow service.

10. Do you have a stitching chair?
Yup, its a rocking/gliding/recliner!  I love it!

11. Do your children/pets get into your stitching things?
No kids, and really my cats are very good.  But I also tend not to leave things out either... you just never know!

12. Do you participate in any stitching forums?
I used to but not anymore, there just aren't enough hours in the day!

I would LOVE to have one of those rocking/recliners. We have reclining sofas, but not rockers.

Happy stitching!

I'm always in awe of how much you stitch, Dani - you always seem to have blazing needles.

Great idea for a blog post, might have to borrow it sometime if that's ok. I love to find out more about my blogging friends.
