Now I've Done It
I went and made a stitching blog. Why? Because I joined a SAL for the first time, am stitching on something other than aida for the first time, am stitching a sampler for the first time and am making it into a needleroll for the first time. That's a lot of firsts and I can't run around reporting on everyone's comment logs, now can I? Half the wonderful blogs I stalk have no idea who I am!
I may be talking to myself and that's ok. I just want a good record of my learning progress in cross-stitching, crochet and knitting. (probably more crochet than knitting, actually). Plus, after reading so many blogs, I often find myself wanting to share things from my day as others have shared with me...and here I was without blog. (well, not exactly..I have the blog on which I write about matters of faith but I want to keep it to that topic). On this one, I can just chat and have fun, right? Right. Ok, then. I plan on having lots of pictures. Boy, how I wish there'd been a blogging world when my children were small. I'd have taken so many more pictures and I've a better record of how they went from lying in my arms to looking down at the top of my little pointy head.
Ok..onward. Up top are pictures of my SAL materials. At the bottom are some things I've stitched or am stitching. Some are really bad, some are ok. All were fun. :) When I have better light, I'll take pictures of my first letter (a, as it turns out) on my first sampler done on my first jobelin that will be my first needleroll. There was some question when I first got the jobelin home of whether I would be able to find the first (or any) stitch. I was overwhelmed by the tiny stitches and trying to count "over 2", but I persevered and now I have a proud "a" to signal my needleroll beginning.
