Ever wonder what the heck cross stitchers mean when they say that they have multiple WIPs, a stack of UFOs, not to mention have achieved SABLE, but they are still going to their LNS to acquire more stash?
Never fear, Center Stitch is here to provide an explanation of cross stitch acronyms and terminology. To wit:
WIP = work in progress
UFO = unfinished object
Stash = personal needlework supplies
SABLE = Stash Acquision Beyond Life Expectancy
LNS = Local Needlework Shop
There now, don't you feel better? Now you'll know what someone means when they ask you if you want to participate in a SAL (stitch-along, multiple stitchers work on a design at the same time) or a RR (round robin - several stitchers working on projects in sequence).
