Hello again everyone!
I’m a little late this morning in posting the check-in due to a bit of post-convention brain fogginess. I just returned home yesterday after a fantastic three days at Stitcher’s Hideaway in Sturbridge, MA. This retreat is held every February as a come-as-you-are relaxed atmosphere to work on whatever you have going and hopefully make some good progress, meet new folks, eat a bunch of yummy (and a bit too much) food, do some shopping, and just have a great time.
I managed to check every box on that list this year. Definitely the best year so far with Hideaway. I needed the escape so badly. Hopefully the relaxed feeling won’t be completely obliterated as soon as I walk in the door at work tomorrow.
So once I get my stuff unpacked and sorted, I’ll get my own check-up posted. 🙂 I wanted to get this up and active, though, since I should have had it done earlier this morning.
(Edit: And of course, as I rush to get this done, I forget my password to login to InLinkz so I can set up this month’s linkup… any minute now that password reset can show up… it’s been 10 minutes since I typed up the rest of the entry…
So… while we wait… how about a random non-stitchy question for you all? Feel free to answer in the comments, or not at all… because I’m sure this looks rather odd in a blog entry… but what fun things do you have planned over the next few months? Here Spring is right around the corner, and I’m getting a little itchy to really spend some time outdoors. Max is old enough now that I’m thinking of taking up some easy form of Geocaching/Letterboxing with him to go have some adventures and also get some good walking exercise.)
Update at 6 pm – Link up has now been added – thank you for your patience!
Okay… clearly it’s going to take a while for that InLinkz issue to get solved… so I’m going to post this for now. Please post your link in the comments, and if you have a preferred photo to link to it, please EMAIL it to me at measiwitch(at)gmail.com. I’ll add everyone personally to the linkup once I get this fixed.)
I hope that all of you had a wonderful February and made some great progress, too!
Important SAL Announcements…
Question of the Month – What is your favorite stitch other than the standard cross stitch? (bonus points if you provide a how-to link or diagram it on your blog post!)
Next posting date: March 26, 2017
Topic for next time: What stitchy blogs, groups, or flosstubes do you follow and why?
Please remember that this stitch-a-long is intended to be fun – so if you’re too busy to post, too busy/ill/etc. to stitch – no worries. Post when you can and share what you have going, even if you’ve only been able to toss a single stitch into it. If you miss a few months, not a problem – just jump back in when you’re back with us! It’s not a race or a competition – we’re all just here to cheer each other on with our progress.
Due to different browsing software, some bloggers have found it difficult to check-in with their posts. There are three different ways to check in:
- Via Auto-link
- Via comments (make sure you include your blog address!)
- Via email – to measiwitch(at)gmail.com, only if the other two options are not working. Again- make sure you include your blog address! I’ll add it to the auto-link myself when I have a free moment.
