SBQ and Happy Dance!

First the Happy Dance! It's been nearly 3 years in the making. Finished it Tuesday and I'm STILL on cloud 9! TW's English Garden Sampler. It was started before I knew about framing margins and I ended up not having enough fabric to do the outer border. To be honest, I don't think the piece looses anything without it. Sorry for the funky folds, draping it over the couch arm and back was the only way I could get enough light!

Today's SBQ was suggested by Carol
and is:

Since you started blogging, have you noticed any difference in your stitching habits? Tell us about them.

I have noticed some changes but I can't say it's due to blogging per se. It's more due to finding all of the message boards, which then led to blogging about my stitching. I've tackled more complex projects, I tracked hours on one and I've started a rotation. So far I'm VERY happy with the rotation and don't have any plans to tweak it. I do also stitch more since I've plugged into the online communities. That I can blame on blogging and the boards, lol.

And one more picture! This is St. Basil's Cathedral after one rotation, which is two weeks. I didn't get as much done as I had wanted to though due to interference known as real life. It's stitched 2x2 on 32ct Belfast "Jamaica Sparkle" by SW.
