Welcome to my Blog

I decided that today would be a good day to start my stitching blog. I have another blog, but I tend to be bitchy on that one, so this is far better for me to describe stitching.

I chose the title of my blog because, to be really honest, most people think I am nutso for doing this hobby. The first thing you hear when someone sees you stitching, other than, "Is that knitting or needlepoint", is, "I could never do that." And people will not believe that I am just counting and making little x's. How frigging difficult is that? So really, I guess it is a little crazy to most people to make a picture out of thread. And to spend money on magazines about that topic, that I never intend to give up. I mean, people who love clothes, you don't see them hoarding Cosmo. But I am, and that makes me happy.

Anyway, so I thought this would be a great place to write about my stitching. Maybe post pictures. I don't know. Other stitchers have these blogs, so I do too!
I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
