I had actually taken a break from counted cross stitch for a couple of years when I lost my sewing bug. The previous winter season, my sister-in-law assisted me to reignite that fire and we began sharing photos of our current sewing projects.
Prepared to discover some brand-new terminology? Here we go.
FO – Finished Object
FFO – Fully Finished Object
WIP – Work In Progress
BAP – Big Ass Project
LNS – Local Needlework Shop
SAL – Stitch Along. This happens in person or virtually!
ORT – Old Remaining Threads
FROG – When you have to rip out something sewed improperly. RIPIT RIPIT
Stitchy Mail– Getting fantastic plans in the mail which contain just sewing products. I right away take a photo and send it out to my child and SIL. They comprehend the thrill.
Needle-minder– cool little pin/button with a magnet on its back that you can connect to your material and lay your needle on while not sewing. Whoever at first developed this concept is a genius!
Coffee/Tea dyeing fabric – WHAT?! Yes, it’s an amazing way to make your fabric look older and there are tons of tutorials on YouTube. I learned from watching TheRealHousewivesofCrossStitch Flosstube.
Until next time, keep that needle moving!
