9. Yes, I am aware there isn’t really any magic.

I'm working on an area that has large blocks of an individual colour. As I was about to start an area with 3855 I realized I had about a yard left. It was possible I would have to start a new skein within this block. I checked my new skein and it looks the same shade. Sometimes they are very different. So, I threw away about a yard of thread and just started the new one.
I know this was the right thing to do....yet I feel guilty.

2. I don't give a rat's tushie what the back of my project looks like. I'll always choose to travel if the space I'm traveling across is shorter than the amount of thread I'd use going under 3-4 stitches both stopping and starting.
3. Parking makes my head explode - I can never figure out where I stopped and am constantly convinced I've picked up the wrong color to continue with.
4. I use masking tape to bind the edges - I figure I always give myself a 4" border so the framer can just cut it off and sew their own edging if it bothers them so much.
5. I wash my pieces with Woolite. I've done it for 30 years and never had a piece develop mystery stains, discolor, or fall apart.
6. I will die with an ungodly number of patterns, kits, and skeins of floss that I never got around to using and my daughter will curse my bones when she has to clean out my house.
