Happy Car Day!

Well, that’s what it felt like. Poor Sam had to take time off from work, because it was Pain Doc Day. The pain doc­tor is off in the wilds of Cobb Coun­ty, because that’s where we lived when I start­ed see­ing a pain doc­tor, and it’s darn near impos­si­ble to get a ref­er­ence to a […]

Thing-A-Day 1!

If there’s a way to auto-cross-post rel­e­vant entries from here to Thing-A-Day, I haven’t fig­ured it out. Doing it man­u­al­ly feels inel­e­gant. I don’t have a pho­to to post, but I got out the draw­ing tablet for the first time in an embar­rass­ing­ly long time and worked on a cross-stitch design. It split into two […]

SBQ: What do you do while stitching?

The Stitch­ing Blog­gers’ Ques­tion of the week is: What is your favorite pas­time while stitch­ing? Do you just enjoy silence, lis­ten to music/audiobooks or do you “watch” TV/movies? Do you have spe­cif­ic favorites you lis­ten to/watch while stitch­ing? I like gam­ing while stitch­ing, but I’m find­ing that it does­n’t work so well in one-on-one games. When we […]

SBQ, Heat, Cell Phone

It’s been a while since I answered one of the Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tions. This week’s is Are you start­ing some­thing new to cel­e­brate the New Year or par­tic­i­pat­ing in “Guilt Free Jan­u­ary?” If so, what are you plan­ning on start­ing? I had to go look up “Guilt Free Jan­u­ary.” Appar­ent­ly, it refers to some practice […]

I Have Done More Than Twittering!

For one thing, I have sev­er­al draft posts sit­ting around here, but I haven’t been able to stay focused long enough to fin­ish any of them. Sam caught some kind of flu-like crud, which Katie and I both caught, of course. Now he seems to be get­ting it again, which is gross­ly unfair. Poor bear! The girl […]

Color Clues, or Why Four Blue Sweaters Isn’t Enough

“Anoth­er blue sweater? You have four of those. Why not get some­thing dif­fer­ent for a change?”

“No, I have navy, corn­flower, Williams­burg, and baby blue sweaters. This one is roy­al blue. That’s total­ly different!”

Okay guys, I know that you thought women were mak­ing up some of the col­or names we use. Char­treuse? Why not say green? And garnet—that’s red, right? What’s this about plum, amethyst, grape, vio­let, mauve, and fuschia all being dif­fer­ent? They’re all pur­ple, aren’t they?

No, real­ly, they aren’t. We don’t make them up just to vex you. They’re all very, very dif­fer­ent, which is why we would nev­er con­sid­er wear­ing brick red lip­stick with a cher­ry red sweater. Ick!

Now there’s help for you. Free help, even!

Dragon Con, Weekend Planning, and Back to School

I won’t be going to Drag­on Con unless a tick­et (or pass—hey, I’m will­ing to do pan­els, ya know) falls out of the air. Sam will be run­ning games and the girl will be work­ing the con, so they both got pass­es. :-)  I’d hap­pi­ly meet out-of-town­ers for lunch or some­thing, though. Jean­nie, are you still […]

Fantasy & science fiction art gallery

I just learned about Epi­logue, a mar­velous online gallery and com­mu­ni­ty, by way of a link from needle­work design­er and artist Tere­sa Went­zler’s blog. Went­zler’s art has just been approved for inclu­sion there. Con­grats to her! Epi­logue could eas­i­ly become anoth­er time sink!

SBQ: Stitching on the Road

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­ger’s Ques­tion is What do you keep your WIPs and oth­er stitch­ing sup­plies in when trav­el­ing? I near­ly did­n’t answer this one, because the bag is dingy! This is the dis­rep­utable bag in which I car­ry my cur­rent stitch­ing projects. Projects go in Ziplock bags inside the bag, as the bag itself has […]
