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 stumbling […]

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 I keep […]

School Happy

I final­ly got the grades from the first tech­ni­cal writ­ing assign­ment I turned in last week, and the peer reviews I did on two of my class­mates’ rough drafts. I got full points for all of them! I was wor­ried about one of the peer reviews because the per­son chose to do a set of instructions […]

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: 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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Happy Friday!

The girl is gone this week­end. I’m start­ing to feel like the house is just a place where she keeps her stuff and does her laun­dry! I sup­pose that’s nor­mal for any par­ent of an old­er teen and good prac­tice for when she goes off to col­lege. It does­n’t mean that I have to like […]
