December's Stitching Blogger Questions (SBQ) can be found on Lake Stitcher's Blog HERE. The question is:
Name your favorite designer(s). Have your tastes changed over time?
My answer: Teresa Wentzler and Joan Elliott are my favorite designers though I have many many more that I enjoy a lot such as Tam's Creations, Little House Needleworks, and so many more!
I have to say that yes my tastes have changed over time. A few years ago I would have said that I did not enjoy stitching samplers, well that has changed as I have found patterns of samplers that I just love such as Quakers and others. Basically I now choose patterns based on whether or not I like the design instead of just going by the designer's name/company name. I have a little bit of everything in my stash from HAEDs, to simply one color smalls, to samplers and more. If it makes me go "Ohhhh I love that!" everytime I see the design then eventually I purchase it.
