So, I finally got that blog up and running that I've been talking about for the last 4 years. The hardest part was thinking up a name. I thought I had it about 18 months ago but that name was taken.

Stitching Between The Lines popped into my mind because I'd rather be sewing or reading more then just about anything else in the world. Mostly, I can stitch and/or read while doing a whole bunch of other things. You know, waiting in the car for a kid, waiting at the orthodontist office again...., waiting up for a kid's phone call, you get the idea. Such perfect hobbies.

I have 3 kids and live in a part of the country where winter lasts about 6 months. Again, perfect hobbies. I could live anywhere in the world as long as there was a library and the UPS guy can find my house. (With my new Kindle, the UPS guy is almost expendable.) Oh, bite my tongue..... who would bring me all that great stitching and quilting stash.

I plan to post about my stitching, quilting and reading, for the most part. Since the kids, the husband, the job, and the cat are forever present, they'll get mentioned too.

I'm going for a small amount of anonymity, the kids would have a cow otherwise, so I'll try to keep things a little general. Don't be afraid to email or post a comment asking for more specific info, though.

OK..... So here goes...... now I just need to get people to stop by and see this all come together.

I'm off..... The Queen Bee

  13. Welcome to the blogging community. I jumped in a little over a year ago and amazed how quickly the world seem to shrink. Between reading other blogs, having people read & comment on mine and then participating in all the different stitching exchanges (and other activities) - I have met and interacted with some many wonderful people from all over the world. I have even been blessed with meeting some as I travel with my son's hockey team.
    I hope that you find as much enjoyment and reward from blogging as I do!
    Take care,
    Lisa D
