Dori’s In Stitches! Episode #71

Stitching, floss, and needles, OH MY!
Dori has been dying to share with us her newly rediscovered hobby, counted cross stitching. It’s been a love of her’s for years but it’s recently come back around to the forefront of her mind.

I shared with Dori a hack for storing all her DMC floss. This was shared in the Twilters group on Facebook. It’s from a post on Mary Corbet on how to use comb binding to hang your DMC floss in a file box.

Dori has been playing with cross stitching monthly boxes. Her first box was from the Fat Quarter Shop called Hello There! Each month she gets a new piece of linen, buttons, and a needle minder all to make these adorable stitched projects.

She also gave StitchyBox a try and loved what she received from them! Originally she was on a waiting list but a spot opened up and she received a box full of stitching yummies.

All of these goodies has really fueled her passion for stitching to reignite and burn brightly. She wrote about her newest projects like band samplers and patterns by Heaven and Earth Designs.

She’s also discovered a new app that is really turning out to be a useful tool to read her patterns.

  1. Well, isn’t that cool?! We used to own a cross stitch store so we actually have the wooden DMC floss boxes in the garage. They are HUGE but very useful for storing floss in. HAHA – I wouldn’t recommend it for everyone but we couldn’t throw them out or the floss that was in them. So whenever I’m out of a color I just trot out to the garage and look for the number – of course, they are in numerical order. Love the app! ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Rosanne!
      You used to own a cross stitch store?!? That’s soooo cool! Do you stitch in hand, with scroll bars, stretcher bars or q-snaps? What is your favorite completed piece? Any hints or advice you’d like to pass along?

  3. HI Ladies,
    Just wanted to see if we could see a picture of the frame Dori got for her cross stitch. I’m actually looking around for one.
