The current Stitching Blogger’s Question is: What do you do to your thread clippings? Do you just scrap them or do you use them in something else? I throw them away, as I don’t know what else I would do with them. The only possible use I know of is a vague memory of someone on RCTN using […]
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 I keep […]
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 […]
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 […]

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 […]
“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!
I’ve been waiting eagerly for this week’s SBQ. I don’t know why, I just have. They sometimes remind me of stash I don’t think about often enough. Do you have an organizational system for your fabric? If so, what is it? If not, what do you store your fabric in? How do people store their fabric, […]
Originally published at Enemy of Entropy. You can comment here or there. First, I’ll answer this week’s SBQ: What do you do with your charts once you’ve stitched them? Do you keep them or dispose of them? If you keep them, do you organize them in a way that is different from the way you […]
