Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks so much for stopping by once again to share a little time with me and my babbling. I do enjoy this Bog and you’re commenting.... I did enjoy the comments from yesterday post.....
Sweet Minnie... thanks for the kind words about my glasses, but I really only have hair on the sides and on top it has gotten so thin you can see my thoughts!!
Peggy Lee - you will so enjoy your Chucks!! I don't know what I would do without them. Since most of the tennis shoes out there are over thought and over designed - the majority of them do not appeal to me in the least.
Dear Marly I think I have been the same size (which by the way isn’t too small!!) for probably the last decade - it fluctuates a bit - but really sort of stays the same.
Melody mentioned stitching in hand. I have tried that but with the way the linen gets so floppy when I tried I got way too frustrated way too fast - and it was so far from enjoyable that I would have given up stitching if it weren't for the Q-Snap. I have never noticed a Q-Snap pulling any stitches - I have heard of that, but never seen it myself. I do notice that the stitches will flatten out, but a good shake of the piece once released from the Q-Snap usually fluffs it right back.
... And Orlythe asked about how I use my Q-Snap... I don't have a stand - I just sort of hold it with my hands with my feet propped up on footstool and my snap again my knee with left hand under and my right over the work. I use both hands working the needle both through the linen with my right hand grasping the needle with my left then pushing it back through from underneath and catching it again with my right hand - it certainly sounds odd when written out. I guess you could liken it to a sort of sewing machine action - I don't know if this way of stitching has a name but it works for me.
Wrapping up the day - another Blast from the past... and I hear you Beth, boy, do I feel old sometimes!!!
A super song from 1979 - "Knock on Wood" by Amii Stewart. This video has about 20 seconds of sound without picture at the beginning - but you will eventually get to the video It is interesting to see this very early Music Video. I remember that I had the 12 inch extended remix version - remeber them!! I have listened to this about six times this moring and have been just bouncing away while I write out today's post - so enjoy!!!! It's a great old song!!
That's about it for today sports fans - do stop by again!!
