I am working on the Sampler Roll from A School Room Alphabet by Vickie and Meagan Jennett. I have actually made more progress than shown here but I do not have a current picture. I am going to finish this myself. I got a great new sewing machine in May and I haven’t used it half enough. It is Janome and I am very happy with it so far!

A Sister’s Garden by La-D-Da stitched on 52/60 count with thread conversion to Gloriana Tudor Silks. I loved the story that Lori M. stitched it for her sister. I saw it after market at my LNS and I just thought it be the perfect pattern to try on the 52/60 count fabric. It was so easy to stitch, surprisingly. I know some people would not be able to stitch on that count due to eye problems, but I am going to while I can!

Here is Nutmeg, playing with a crinkle bag I bought 2 or 3 years ago, for the first time! I was sitting on the couch and I heard the noise. I was very surprised she was sitting on it. Of course, that was last week, before Christmas, and she has not bothered it since! Sorry for the poor lighting. The picture was taken from my iPhone.

 I have a few finishes to show after being away from this for another year. From Ewe & Eye & Friends, “Forget-Me-Not.”  This was framed by the very talented Sandy at The Attic Needlework & Collectibles, my LNS.

I also finished stitching “Christmastide at Holly House” by The Scarlett House. I just picked up the framed piece at my LNS yesterday and will show the framed piece next post.

Well, as this was just a quick post done from the new laptop late on Saturday night, I will close with the knowledge that I am at least giving my blogging a try! Have a good night and I will be back very, very, soon!

Just do it!

Not original but my new motto. I have been thinking about this blog but doing nothing. Part of my perfectionism. If I cannot do a perfect job, I do not do it at all! I must change that. Anyway, I have been viewing lots of other stitching blogs so that has given me ideas.

I do not have new stitching photos so I will post what I do have. No  harm in that.

Nutmeg

My lovely girl in her box. Leo, my Steiff lion, is in the background. I left the boot boxes on the floor and the cats jumped right in them. So now they are a permanent fixture on my bed. Not that anyone is following me, but part of my absence is due to my new employment. I was able to find a job, in my chosen field. I am a health sciences librarian at Midwestern University, an osteopathic medical school. It has worked out quite well and I am very lucky to be able to still work as a librarian.

Luna

Luna is the newest addition. She was a stray with a clipped left ear that would show up in the evenings and my neighbor and I would feed her. Then after a year, she started coming into my apartment to the dismay of Cocoa and Nutmeg. But she needed a family and she decided we were it! She is still indoor/outdoor. I would prefer that she would be indoor only but it is very difficult to get her to stay inside. The place is small and I cannot make a space that replicates being out. She stays in longer and longer so I hope that someday she will not want to go out that much.

Well, time and motion wait for no man or person as I like to say. Just wanted to get something going. I was such a slacker but I hope to be back. One blogger I watch seems to have a pattern of posting on one particular day a week and that seems like a good plan for me. I have not chosen the day yet but this is a start!

So, to no one in particular out there, enjoy the day! I will be back!

I have no followers because I am not updating this enough. I finally got a job so am settling in to having an income, and hopefully, shaking off the depression that stopped me from continuing with my blog. I have been doing many crafts so at least  I have a lot to post when I am at home and have access to my photos. I just wanted to post SOMETHING just in case someone checked. I am alive and still sewing! Be back real soon!

I have not been blogging at all. Very bad. Time to start again. This short post is just to keep me live!

Shortly after I started my blog, I received a grant to attend a training program. So beginning in October, 2009, I began going to TechSkills in Mesa, Arizona. It was hard work but it has been worth it. I learned a lot but there is so much more for me to learn.

I’ll be spending some time practicing what I learned and more importantly, looking for a job!

I even hope to use some of these skills on this blog. Make it prettier and more customized.

Talk soon!

I have finally decided to just plunge into creating a blog. My intent is to share photos and information on various projects, including cross stitching and decorating. I spent a bit of time thinking of the name and decided on Twitch Upon the Thread. The phrase comes from a short story by G. K. Chesterton. I liked it so much, I wanted to use it as the name of my blog.

So, enjoy what is here. I am still learning how to use this blog so bear with me.
