CELEBRATING OUR 150th READER GIVEAWAY

About Me

My photo
I have collected incredible amounts of cross stitch magazines in my over 30+ years of cross stitching. I enjoy knitting, crocheting and cross stitch. In May 2011 I decided to make my dream of sharing my love of needlecrafts a reality and started the online shop, The Stitcher's Market along with hubby. My biggest hope is to pass on my love of stitching to my children. Let's face it, some one has to inherit all my stash. I am shy, but I truly appreciate everyone's comments and friendship. I am glad to help anyone who needs any stitching information. I love to have giveaways and share other bloggers giveaways, so please stop by often. Enjoy your stay!

It's Science Fair Time

Ask me how I know this. Yes, here I am mostly, trying to make sense of this project as I usually do so that a creative display may be supplied to the fair.

I always come out with really nice display ideas, and I trust that I will at the end, but the journey is not an enjoyable one especially when time runs short and my son just stares at me. My hope is that I am imparting some knowledge to my son regarding the creative process and putting things together in a pleasant way. Let's just say my son does not get the "pretty / asethetic " idea. He is more of a "Let's do it and the pieces will fall where they may," type. Well, he is still a kid, so we have time to develop "color coordination / and neatness skills." LOL. I bet when he starts liking girls he will become VERY color co-ordinated and extremely neat. LOL.

Other than the display, not much creativity going on around here. Getting over my upper respiratory infection finally and hoping the headache I have now is not the brewing of a sinus infection.

Definitely looking forward to stitching or crocheting at least for an hour. Okay, picking up a needle will do. NCIS marathon is on and although I do enjoy it, I am getting a bit tired of seeing the same episodes over and over again.

This week I saw a repeat of an old episode of MONK that I had never seen before. That was a treat because I like Monk. Dectective series always strike me in good ways.

The Event started last week and I can't believe I missed the Season Premiere. Thankfully, NBC does post them on their website so I caught up quickly. V is another series that I am following this year. I remember when V came out decades ago and I saw everyone of those first-run episodes. Yes, I am one of those people who can still sing the Magilla Gorilla song from memory because I saw the first-run comic episodes. I still remember Penelope Woodstock and all the wonderful vintage animated programs.

If you are a Cityville player, you know that many people are upset about the recent changes regarding imposed energy limits. This makes Cityville even more challenging now especially since I only get on at nighttime during the weekend.

Well, I hope to find a cross stitch magazine or two leaf through. There are a few cross stitch charts that have come across from the Nashville market that are on my must have list. But, let's be real for a minute. Will I stitch them? I should in all reality stitch from my stash this year, so I can make room for more. Right?

At least I am blogging more which is a far cry from my past few months.

Scientific stitches.....
