OK, I had a couple of days off from MTM, so I figured I could handle some more Chatelaine stitching tonight. I picked up Mystery 9 to work on Part 7... these little veggie gardens go quickly and I got quite a bit done. I cannot help but to wonder now what Part 8 will bring.... it won't be another pair of triangular veggie gardens.... will it be huge?? Gulp!! Maybe I will finish this part tomorrow, if I am not totally exhausted (Sundays have been wasted lately... so tired by then, maybe I shouldn't stay up so late??).
Q. Since you started blogging, have you noticed any difference in your
stitching habits? Tell us about them.
A. I submitted this question to Renee, because recently some of my pals who stitch and blog have been chatting with me about this very idea. For the most part, we have all come to say that we find ourselves to be much more accountable about our own stitching since we started to blog. For my own part, I have also found that I am now in many more SALs than I was when I was just visiting bulletin boards, I have discovered some wonderful new designers, and I have found so much support and encouragement from fellow stitchers while blogging - such as the fantastic support from my fellow bloggers for me to keep at it with Medieval Town Mandala! If I were not blogging, this project may very easily be far behind or have turned into a UFO... thank you, again, friends for that support! From a non-stitching point of view, blogging has opened my eyes and mind up to other parts of the world (still trying to get used to the idea that it is actually winter in the southern hemisphere, while it is mid-summer and very hot here in July!). I have made terrific friendships too! I am amazed that some bloggers have written that blogging has not changed their stitching habits... as I read their blogs, I see that they are just not even aware then of how much blogging has changed their habits... no exceptions, I think :-)
