Fave styles of designs/stitching styles: Samplers, Quaker, Mermaids, complex gardens like Chatelaines, Angels and geometrics if they have fancy beads and threads, stitching etui, tools and smalls, and I'm mad about needlerolls!
Fave thread types/brands: I enjoy using and experimenting with all hand-dyed threads both cottons and silks, all silks, & metallics; but specifically, I trust: Thread Gatherer, Gloriana, Sampler Threads, Caron, Needle Necessities, AuVeraSoie, Anchor&DMC, Kreinik, RainbowGallery, NPI silks, Vicki Clayton
Fave fabrics: Opalescent Handpainted Belfast 32ct. or Evenweave; and old-fashioned linen that we've used for years! I'm also newly into 40 ct. linen. I tend to like the softer colors such as "tea stained." But, I have some blues that I really love, too.
Any dislikes: In stitchery I really don't care for cutesie things like goofy snowmen, dogs and kittens. I do like cutesie Halloween things, though. I really dislike snobby stitchers who think they have the corner on all things stitching...the attitude drives me crazy and spoils many a stitching get-together. I think stitching is an art of the heart and is to be fun and friendly.
Pets/children: Delight in both children and dogs...if they are well behaved. Although, big dogs scare me and aren't my thing...I have a yorkie named Clara, who is my little stitching companion.
