SBQ of the Week

This week’s SBQ was inspired by my visit with Dawn and is:



With the exception of your online stitching friends, do you have any other stitching buddies?

I have a couple of stitching buddies but none like Renee! My other friends are into stitching because I have taught them how to stitch. My first buddy, Nancy, is my next door neighbor that I taught a couple of months ago how to stitch. We haven't been able to really sit down and stitch together because she has a 2 year old daughter and can only get a few minutes at a time to stitch.

Another one of my buddies is my brother, Jerry. I didn't intentionally teach him how to stitch. He has lived with us on several occasions (those are multi blog entries!) and was always interested in my stitching so he learned from watching me and asking me questions. He has been known to call me at midnight to ask me a question about stitching.

I also get to share my hobby with my daughter, Allie. I taught her about 4 years ago starting out on plastic canvas and now she is on aida. Krissy knows to stitch but she gets frustrated easily and puts it away for months at a time. My son has started to learn how to stitch on plastic canvas and he works on it non stop for a few days and then wants to pick it up again. I think I am pretty lucky to have family and friends who share my passion!
