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 […]

Further Prof of Insanity: Blog365

I got through NaBloPo­Mo, as ridicu­lous as it was to com­mit to post­ing at least once a day for a month. So of course that small suc­cess has led me, in a moment of more-than-usu­al-luna­­cy, to sign up for Blog365 (oth­er­wise known as “Out of the Fry­ing Pan, Into the Fire”). The pur­pose is fair­ly clear: […]

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

Orig­i­nal­ly pub­lished at Ene­my of Entropy. Please leave any com­ments there. “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 […]

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 […]

Weird

My paid LJ account is about to expire, and I’m not feel­ing any anx­i­ety about it. There are far more impor­tant things to pay for. Yeah, I’ll miss the extra icons and the sim­ple URL, but I’ve been try­ing to move to my blogs any­way. They’re syn­di­cat­ed here. Oh — if you com­ment on the syndicated […]

Stitching Bloggers’ Question of the Week: Fabric Organization?

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, […]

SBQ: Needlework tools

The stitch­ing blog­gers ques­tion of the week is Do you have a favorite needle­work tool that you like to work with? What is it and why do you like using it? I use very few tools in stitch­ing. There are many that I’ve tried or con­sid­ered, but only one thing oth­er nee­dles and scis­sors has stuck: […]

SBQ: Embroidery scissors

This week’s Stitch­ing Blog­gers Ques­tion is Many of us have a few pairs of embroi­dery scis­sors and some even have a “col­lec­tion”. How many pairs of scis­sors do you have? Feel free to share a pho­to of your favorite pair or pairs with us! I just have the one pair, but that pair is sacred! No […]
