The invisible thread...

I have to admit, I have quite a long list of blogs I'm following now, and I just don't get the chance to visit all of them as much as I'd like to!  I know - there are only so many hours in a day, right?  And we want to spend any free time we have STITCHING, not hunting the Internet.  But, I am really happy that I've reached over 100 followers now, and thought I should take a day each week to mention one or two of the blogs I follow - pay it forward, so to speak!

First off, by chance this morning I happened upon Karen's blog, My Stitchy Ramblings.  How kind of Karen to mention me and my blog in her last post!  If you haven't yet had a chance, check out Karen's blog.  She even has some "eye candy" of a non-stitching variety posted recently.  You'll just have to go on over and check for yourself, but take my word for it when I tell you HE learned all his body sculpting techniques from ME!  (LOL! Yeah, don't I wish!)

As so often happens, one blog leads to another, and from Karen's blog I visited A Stitch of This...A Stitch of That.  Since she is shooting for 100 followers, I felt I had to spread the love and direct you over in her direction. Go check it out!

And last, but certainly not least, I ended up on Rebekah's blog, The Stitching Frog. I'm not even sure now how I ended up finding Rebekah's blog this morning, but I'm glad I did!  She has some beautiful progress pics posted of a project called "Around the World in 80 Stitches."  Now, I'm not familiar with this project, but it sure sounds interesting.  Of course, Rebekah is already up to part TEN, so looks like it's too late for me to weasel my way into that project -- but I do love the pics she has posted, so I'll try to remember to check in now and then to follow her progress!

Finally, before coming here to jot a quick post, I somehow or other made it full circle back to a blog writing about KAREN (remember ... Where I started off this morning!?)  Andie, at stitchitandie, was posting to help out Karen with growing her number of followers!

Just goes to show that although our stitching community is large and worldwide, we are all somehow connected by a thread. Kind of like "Six Degrees of Separation" or that Bent Creek design about the red thread that connects us all. Right?  Well, I thought it was kinda neat anyway!



And speaking of thread -- my stash is calling to me to get inside and stop neglecting it a minute longer.  So, until next time, have a great day and enjoy your blog surfing and stitching.  Progress pics will be posted next time.  Sorry I've been loading up on text heavy posts lately!  Kevin

  9. I sometimes can't get to read all the blogs on my list either. I try to play catch up now and then though. If I tried to keep up with everyone, I wouldn't have stitching of my own to share!! :)

  10. I've gotten rather out of control with all the blogs that I follow and subsequently neglect. (Naughty blogger!) I go in fits and starts, I'll go a few days and read everything, then a week reading nothing.

    I'm glad we've been able to connect by our Six Degrees. Thanks for the double mention! ;)

  15. Maybe my chance to enable - Around the World in 80 Stitches is a Papillion Creations SAL and you can join any time. VERY minimal cost for the first part (1 or 2 Euros) and the rest are free. It's a two year SAL so still plenty of time.
