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: 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 […]

SBQ: Other crafts?

This week­end’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion: Are there oth­er crafts that you have tried and aban­doned? Why do you like stitch­ing bet­ter? Short ver­sion: Because it’s one of the few visu­al­­ly-beau­ti­­ful things I’ve ever been good at.

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 […]
