SBQ: Essential Needlework Gear

Yay! Anoth­er Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion: What items do you con­sid­er essen­tial to your needle­work that you keep in your stitch­ing bag The pat­tern, fab­ric, and ring of floss cards for my cur­rent project, the scroll bars or Q‑Snaps or hoop or what­ev­er I’m using (I sel­dom stitch in hand), and a long sil­ver chain on which I […]

SBQ: Print it out or stitch from screen?

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion is: When you stitch a pat­tern that you have down­loaded do you print out the pat­tern or do you stitch direct­ly from your com­put­er screen? I don’t remem­ber actu­al­ly stitch­ing any of the many pat­terns I’ve down­loaded. The­o­ret­i­cal­ly, though, I’m sure I’d print them out, and prob­a­bly put the print­out in a […]

Another One Down

I fin­ished up week 3 of the semes­ter, which means that we’re almost at the halfway point. I real­ly, real­ly want to get done with both class­es this semes­ter. I’ve had to drop the man­age­ment class twice in the past, and I’m tired of it! The human­i­ties class isn’t that bad, oth­er than the “My Country […]

SBQ: What do you do with completed patterns?

This week’s ques­tion is the first of some recy­cled ques­tions. It was first asked back in 2005, and I don’t think I even knew about SBQ then, so I doubt that I’ve answered it before. After you stitch a pat­tern or kit, what do you do with it? I’ve done so few kits that they hardly […]

SBQ: Stitching weaknesses?

What is your cross stitch weak­ness? (i.e., What do you have to have when you see it, even if you are sup­posed to be on the Wag­on?) I’m sup­posed to go telling my weak­ness­es, in pub­lic? Well, I guess I’ve already exposed them, con­sid­er­ing the lists on my site. I adore “dif­fer­ent” pat­terns. If it jumps […]

Gone Already?

Wow. This has been a very short week. I’m sure it does­n’t feel that way to my poor Sam, but it does to me. That’s what hap­pens when you sleep through most of it, I sup­pose. I’ve avoid­ed acknowl­edg­ing the pos­si­bil­i­ty that Katie AND I have mono, but I have the same symp­toms she does, […]

SBQ: Starting Over?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion of the Week is: Do you have any projects that you have scrapped and start­ed over? What made you start over from scratch? I can only remem­ber one, and I restart­ed it at least twice, maybe three times. It was the Celtic Cross designed by Deb Davis for Y‑Knot Designs. I think […]

What do you want to read or hear?

I record­ed some more pieces, but need to wait for Sam to “pro­duce” them (clean them up and add appro­pri­ate music). One of them isn’t some­thing I would have cho­sen myself, but Todd, who cre­at­ed Live Read­ings, asked to hear oth­ers read it. It turned out bet­ter than I thought it would. And it was […]

Still Thinging; Date Night

I am, in fact, still keep­ing up with Thing-a-Day! I need to go post over there, though. I do wish I could auto­mat­i­cal­ly cross-post, but if wish­es were fish­es and all that. I stitched tonight while Sam and I gamed. I also wrote a while, ear­li­er. Sam and I have recent­ly begun par­tic­i­pat­ing in a forum […]
