Circling the Globe
Did you know that stitchers in the southern hemisphere are required to stitch their Cirque des Cercles rounds in an anti-clockwise direction, whereas we in the northern hemisphere taken them on clockwise? Unless of course, you are a south-paw! The rules are completely reversed for left-handed stitchers. Yup, those are the rules. Seriously, some stitchers think there is a secret list of rules for stitching that include things like only stitching a piece in the colors shown, only stitching the entire piece, no personalization allowed - the list goes on. Spoiler: there is no list; there are no rules.*
This would be a very boring blog and a very boring world without people like Susan to inject a little local color.
* Not to be confused with rules regarding copyright material. There are rules against copying others works and claiming it as your own, photocopying/scanning charts without permission of the author, etc.
