Boy, am I late in answering this month's SBQ. I was so busy at work and on the road almost every evening that this month has just flown by. But just in time here is my answer:
I do watch DVDs while stitching or listen to ZRock.fm, my favorite Hardrock music station on Webradio. When stitching smaller projects, I start with one color and finish this color before moving to the next. If the projects are bigger I start with the first symbol on the symbol list and stitch all of the stitches I can get to (meaning without a lot of counting and jumping around) in this particular color and then move on to the next symbol and so on. When I am at the end of the list I start again at the top.
Happy stitching everyone!!!
