Hi everyone! How's every little thing?
What? Why are you looking at me like that? Just because I haven't posted anything here for 10 months?
Well, I've got a good reason for it. I've been going through a blue period. No, I'm not comparing myself to Picasso. It's just that a lot of the stuff that I made was monochrome, often blue, like this one:
This one's green, but you get the idea:
And the pattern for this one is for sale in the Mr X Stitch etsy store (WHAT I AM JUST SAYING WHAT.):
Someday soon I hope to start stitching in color again. Or at least more than one color. :)
Besides that, I've been doing all the normal stuff, like writing at Mr X Stitch, hanging out at the Phat Quarter and the Mr X Stitch page on Facebook, and recording Emergency Pants.
I've also been putting together posts for the Craftster blog and Feeling Stitchy, which is a huge honor, and I have to admit, a bit surreal. Craftster and Feeling Stitchy were huge inspirations for me when I first started cross stitching, and I never would have dreamed that I'd ever be contributing anything to either of them. :)
The really, really big news, that I wanted to share with you, though, is that Jamie (Mr X Stitch) and I have started a podcast - Stitching n Junk! My brother from a European mother and I chat about stitching, interview some of the coolest people in the stitchiverse, and goof off a bit. Check out the first episode here and you can hear our interview with Julie Jackson of Subversive Cross Stitch fame. Eeeeeeeeeee!!!!! :) We've really enjoyed putting it together, and we hope you'll like it, too. :)
I just thought I'd take a moment to share some of those things here. Sometimes I feel as though I'm a little overexposed on the internet - flickr, twitter, tumblr, Facebook, Crafster, Feeling Stitchy, Mr X Stitch, Emergency Pants and now Stitching n Junk too? How much of me should I expect people to take, anyway? :)
