Now on WordPress!

IMG_5643Today I migrated my Sympathetic Threads blog from Blogger over to WordPress. Since I write and maintain several other WordPress blogs already, I  decided that it would be easier to just consolidate everything in one place. I’m also hoping that this resulting ease of access will inspire me to post about my stitching more often.

All it took was a quick glance at a help page and a few keystrokes and I was able to transfer all my posts and comments to WordPress. It couldn’t have been easier! Then the fun part started, as I created a few bits and bobs of artwork for the new site. There’s still more to do, but I wanted to go live with it right away so that I could let my old friends know.

In addition, Sympathetic Threads can now be found on Twitter at @SymThreads.

Dear friends

My elderly mother became ill and passed away earlier this month. I just haven’t had the heart to do any stitching for ages. I hope to take it up again later, but for right now a break is probably the best thing for me. My best to you all.

Found my stork scissors

I am a happy camper once more – I found my favorite embroidery scissors hidden away in the deepest recesses of my couch yesterday! I had to turn the furniture over and rip some of the dust cover off to get at them, but it was all worthwhile. And now see how pretty they look wearing their new handmade beaded scissors fob? I am going to give these babies a good sharpen and then take very good care of them from now on, I promise.

Truth be told

I haven’t stitched a single stitch for over a month, and thus have barely updated here. Mostly I’d been preparing for my recent Chicago trip and have had other concerns on my mind unconducive to pondering linen and floss. And on the occasions when my thoughts did turn to stitching my hands were not cooperating.

I hope I do better now that it is September.
