Just chattering

Here's the SBQ for this week:

When you stitch a pattern that you have downloaded do you print outthe pattern or do you stitch directly from your computer screen?

I print it out. I can't imagine even trying to work from the screen, and I was amazed at the number of people who said they did. I have to be able to scribble all over my patterns and use those see-through rulers or I can't keep my place at all. I've only tried working from the screen once, when I didn't have ink. Didn't last five minutes.

I got some more of Rose of Sharon done but still not enough for a pic. She's very confetti-y in that arch. I'm trying to work down to her arm so I can alternate between the two different parts of the design - the girl and the stonework/roses. Doing that makes it easier for me. Like on Archangel, I'm alternating between the over-one and the over-two stitching. So much easier! Tomorrow I'll be picking the puppy kit back up. I have three days off this week so I'm going to see if I can get her done. If none of my family pops up out of nowhere with movie/shopping/dinner/whatever plans, I could do it... we'll see how that goes.
I think they have radar for when I sit down to stitch: 'oh, she's stitching! time to go interrupt!'

  1. That happens to me, too - oh, she's just sitting there not doing anything important! LOL

    I could never work from a computer screen, though I suppose if I did the boxes with the symbols would be alot larger than my print out, even after it's been enlarged. But my new magnifier lamp is not in the same room with my computer, so there you have it!
