I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

Trip Update!


Amazon Books

Howdy, folks! Just a quick little message to say hi, from Santa Clara, California (and a very nice hotel with an excellent internet connection!) My summer road trip is going great! Very fast, actually. If I told you all the places we’ve been since we left Minnesota last Sunday afternoon (and this not even a week later), you’d probably think I’m nuts, so I’ll just leave it at this: I did manage to make it to both Lacis and Needle in a Haystack, both in the Bay Area, this morning! And a cuple days ago, I managed to stop in at Threadneedle Street outside Seattle. Nice shops, and I picked up some good needlework stuff. I’m looking forward to giving you the details! (And still no stitching – but tomorrow, I plan to peruse a couple new books!)

  1. Oooohhhh! Lacis is my favorite place. It's magical place. I always go there with a budget. And I always blow it. Happily.


  2. Heh. Here you are just down the block from me and I'm off at a stitching retreat in Santa Barbara.
    Funny old world
