Today's SBQ was suggested by Ish is:
How do you choose a project for an exchange? Do you pick solely on what you know of the taste of the recipient or are there other reasons you pick the piece you do?
So far the exchanges I have been involved in have had a theme. I, then do a little research on the recipient's likes and dislikes. Then I look for an appropriate size of the design I would like to stitch.
