Kim over at Threadheads, Unite! tempted me with chocolate fudge pie, so I HAD to give it a try. The crusts in the freezer were deep dish, but they worked as well… Just let me say, Paula Deen. Need any further explanation?
You know how we’re always ooohhing and ahhhing over someone’s beautiful stitching and patterns? Well, this happened with one of the yahoo groups I’m on… where did you find that, how can we get that, etc. One of the members of the group (Ally) recognized the pattern and remembered that she had seen them in magazines that she owns! With her generous spirit, she has set up a cross stitch round robin with these magazines and a yahoo group so that six of us can stitch these lovelies! I just received the March edition, so I’ll be getting ready to start those – March and April – very soon!
Superbowl Sunday is bringing not only The Game, but also a sale at The Stitch and Frame Shop – my LNS. They do online ordering, too! Don’t forget to check out Camp StitchAway scheduled in March! The project is being taught by Meg Shinall – doing the Beginners’ Hardanger class discussed in the February issue of TGOS.
Semi-rant: I’m always happy to ‘promote’ the groups I’m enjoying by posting links to them. I’m sorry to say that is not the case for this group any longer (and they may be happy about that). I guess you’d say I got my feelings hurt by a
member moderator of the group this week. These feelings ranged from wanting to FLAME her (which is actually what she did – not directly at me, but I am in the ‘category’ she was flaming), to wondering why she’s a moderator, to considering leaving the group since I can’t really keep up with all the activities going on anyway (many of the members are on other lists with me, but the owner and a few others are not), down to just consider the source and forget about it. I’ll just say this here, and let it go. We are all entitled to our opinions and our likes and dislikes, but this person has lost my respect. Just because you do not agree with an activity or opinion does NOT make it “stupid,” nor do those who do participate or are entertained by it need to “Get A Life.” We have a life of which …stitching (and its remnants) is a BIG part... Semi-rant: END.
This week I started the All Dolled Up Ornament, Pear Tree, by Little House Needleworks. It, as the others will be, is stitched on 28 ct Tea Monaco 1x1 using the recommended fibers.
Thank you for stopping by. I do appreciate all the kind words you’ve left for me, and please do come back again soon!
and Happy Stitching!
