After you stitch a pattern or kit, what do you do with it?
Kits? Don't generally stitch those. But I do the same as I do with Charts.
I keep many of my charts. Not all, however. I trade a few, sell a few... and now, my stitching group is doing SARs (Stitch Arounds) -- we pass the charts around to others who'd like to stitch the same design. Generally, the original owner gets her chart back at the end of the SAR.
