Recent Finishes

I’ve been stitch­ing away late­ly, and while I can’t talk about my most recent project yet, I did add my most recent two fin­ish­es to my long-neglec­t­ed Fin­ished Works page today. The first piece is a for-no-rea­­son one, the sec­ond a baby gift which was also my first coop­er­a­tive project (and a big suc­cess).

A New Hobby?

Plinky asked, “What new hob­by would you like to try out?”

Camille Sil­ver­man — warp and weft

I would love to try weav­ing. I mean the great big loom sort of weav­ing, done with hand­made fibers — maybe even with fibers I spun myself. The entire idea of weav­ing has always […]

Setting Up Shop

Plinky asked, “If you were going to open up a shop, what would you sell? Food? Cloth­ing? Books?”

Book­store (IBC)

Books and needle­work items! My for­mer part­ner and I used to dream about open­ing a com­bi­na­tion book/stitching/gaming/coffee shop.

Of course, inde­pen­dent book­stores are near­ly dead, and even Bor­ders is dead […]

Gratitude

1) Time with my daugh­ter 2) Deli­cious din­ner with Katie and some love­ly peo­ple 3) Stitch­ing time!

Um, Thank You?

Look! TWO posts in ONE day! Maybe I’m final­ly crawl­ing out of my pit of depres­sion.

My very help­ful child dis­ap­proved of how I was treat­ing my small stitch­ing project, so she sweet­ly put it in a huge Ziplock bag and “put it away.”

I have absolute­ly no idea where “away” might be, but it […]

New Year’s Eve

I hate com­ing up with titles. Can you tell?

Hap­py New Year to all of you. I hope to see more of you in per­son this year!

I’m still not feel­ing well at all, so I haven’t been online much. Despite that, my wrists have been aching as if I were work­ing again. How does […]

SBQ: Overdyed Floss or Hand-dyed Fabric?

I’m quite late with the cur­rent Stitch­ing Blogger’s Ques­tion, which is: If you had to choose, would you rather spend mon­ey on overdyed floss or hand-dyed fab­ric?

Overdyed floss, cer­tain­ly. I’ve only pur­chased one piece of hand-dyed fab­ric, and nobody is like­ly to go, “Oh, wow!” about the effect in the fin­ished piece (although I’m […]

SBQ: Balance?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week (real­ly last week) is:

How do you bal­ance your stitch­ing time with your oth­er oblig­a­tions such as work, house­hold chores, etc.?

That isn’t real­ly an issue for me, as I haven’t been stitch­ing late­ly. I real­ly need to go buy some floss so I can get past a […]

SBQ: Stitching Publications

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week: Do you cur­rent­ly sub­scribe to any stitch­ing pub­li­ca­tions or have you in the past? (Either in print or online) If so, which ones?

I don’t sub­scribe to any at the moment, and I rarely buy them off the rack. I have hun­dreds of them in my stash, and […]

SBQ: Stitching Terms/Acronyms

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion of the Week:

For sea­soned stitch­ers: Define a stitch­ing term or acronym for new stitch­ers.

Gah. I don’t play in the needle­work news­group any more, so I don’t think in acronyms. Rail­road­ing is the only term that I can think of that wasn’t obvi­ous or explained in a pattern’s instruc­tions. […]
