Welcome to my inaugural post for Stitch'n Time. It was a hard decision to retire Needlework Tuesday, but it needed to be done. Frequent readers realize that along with my needlework posts, I also read a lot and post reviews of those books. What I didn't know when I started my needlework column, is that new books are traditionally released on Tuesdays. Now that I am a book seller, I thought it was important for me to be able to post related reviews on their date of release.
Stitch'n Time will be a work in progress. Mostly I will be sharing my needlework progress on an assortment of techniques and projects. I would like to add a few tutorials as well as group projects/challenges. Details on those are still very loose. What will never change is the encouragement I get from my readers . I love your comments as they boost me along and keep my moving forward. Also returning will be Mister Linky so that readers can add a link to their current needlework post.
I hope that you will join me on Mondays for Stitch'n Time.
I have been focused on this baby blanket. The little boy is getting bigger, but this is an oversized blanket, so it won't be a problem. He is still in the baby category so it will still count as a baby gift.
For new visitors, the dad is a body builder and my son asked me to make a blanket with that theme. When I couldn't find a suitable pattern, I designed my own starting an online open image. Shown in this image is the torso up to the underarm area. I am really pleased with how this is turning out. I'll keep you updated with my progress.
Since I haven't had a needlework post in a few weeks, feel free to add your linky to your recent stitch'n posts from the past few weeks.
