Stitching, gaming and everything else

There are times when hav­ing so many inter­ests is, well, of ques­tion­able val­ue. (Not that I’m about to give any of them up.)

When I’m stitch­ing I feel guilty because I haven’t done a pod­cast in a while. Sam is hav­ing a fit with some sort of weird noise just appear­ing in the record­ings, though, […]

SBQ: Embroidery scissors

Embroi­dery Scis­sors Orig­i­nal­ly uploaded by tech­nomom.

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion is

Many of us have a few pairs of embroi­dery scis­sors and some even have a “col­lec­tion”. How many pairs of scis­sors do you have? Feel free to share a pho­to of your favorite pair or pairs with us!

I just have the […]

Kyoshi and Shelley

Yes, the kit­ten has a name of his own! And he has accom­plished much, as evi­denced by this pho­to­graph. Many a cat has attempt­ed to snug­gle with Shel­ley over the past 16 years since her last play­mate died, but very few have suc­ceed­ed. She has even groomed him a bit!

Gratuitous kid pic

Not a great scan, and I can’t find the orig­i­nal, but it is one of my favorite pho­tos of her at that age.

Now run off to get your own free Zooomr pro accounts, folks!

SBQ: Framing and glass

This week’s SBQ:

When you get a project pro­fes­sion­al­ly framed do you get glass insert­ed into the frame? Why or why not?

I’ve post­ed some notes from an attempt to save one piece that was not framed with glass. I was a teen, in high school, and didn’t see a need for glass at the […]

My heart has been stolen!

By a dark, blue-eyed stranger who walked up to me last night. He looked into my eyes and I was gone!

We think he’s about 8 weeks old. He’s very skit­tish right now, pre­fer­ring to stay out of sight and away from Shel­ley unless there’s crack wet food in ques­tion.

Shel­ley is NOT […]

SBQ: Stitching habits?

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion is: Since you start­ed blog­ging, have you noticed any dif­fer­ence in your stitch­ing habits? Tell us about them. Blog­ging hasn’t real­ly changed my stitch­ing habits, but I haven’t got­ten to know a great many oth­er stitch­ing blog­gers — yet 🙂

When that hap­pens, though, I expect that it may […]

TEDTalks

You actu­al­ly want to go watch Hans Rosling talk. You’ll need your sound on. If you ever need to give a pre­sen­ta­tion of any kind at work, it should count as “how to do it” train­ing. Even if you don’t, go watch. You’ll enjoy it, and this is good stuff to know.

The Challenge and a challenge/invitation

A few days ago I referred to the Change Your Life Chal­lenge, but I didn’t real­ly explain much, as I was in a bit of a rush at the time. I’ve been so excit­ed about it, too, that some part of me thinks that of course every­body knows what it is!

Not so, sil­ly Cyn.

They’re STILL here!

Wait — did I men­tion it? No, because I was try­ing not to whine.

We’ve had con­trac­tors here for weeks and weeks, repair­ing the bath­room that was slid­ing into the crawl space.

No, real­ly. I have pic­tures. The floor was falling in, and the toi­let and sink were slid­ing in from one side, the […]
