No stitching this week. Been doing loads of reading and some gaming as well. I have been reading a surprisingly good book – One Thousand White Women: The Journals of May Dodd by Jim Fergus. I was not expecting a lot from this book, but it was recommended to me and so I am reading it – what a great read!


So let’s move on to the SBQ as suggested by Kathryn:

How many needles do you use during a project? Have you ever loaded up a needle for every color? Do you use a new needle for every project or recycle your favorite needle?

I use one needle. The same needle for every project. I remove the needle when I am done, put it in my handy tin and take that with every project. I think my hard working needle deserves a name. Sam, I think.


I have been asked how I likeWordpress. I like it very much! It is super easy to use, everything is right there in front of me – my tags to the right, my images below, no extra coding or pages necessary. The big benefit for me (I realize I am not using it right now) is the tabs. I can have everything from my web page on my wordpress. The only downside I have right now is that I can’t completely customize my template the way I want without spending money on it. That is the gotcha. That being said, there are a bazillion wordpress templates available, so it isn’t a huge hiccup.

    If you have your own webspace, you can host your own installation of the WordPress software, and that is as customizable as you like – all for free 🙂 You do lose the ‘community’ aspects of then though.

    The name of that book reminds me of the old TV show, The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd. Wow, does THAT bring back memories. LOL. My mom and I used to watch that after my parents broke up. Interesting times…
