Smoking needle

     I decided to watch a movie and stitch today, and boy did I get a lot done.  It was a movie I had never seen before, so I didn't think I would.  I watched Stealth, which I thought was quite good.  And, get this, I got over a hundred and twenty stitches into DGM.  I was so impressed.  This is smoking needles for me.  I usually get in a hundred stitches a day, and it's only five thirty here.  Whoo hoo!!!!

Thank you very much for your kind and encouraging comment on my blog.
Like MarchAnn I'd like to see some of your stitching too.
Watching a movie or television mostly slows me down when I am stitching.

Hi Julie,
Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog.
Congrats on your good progress. I also like to have TV or music on while stitching. I hope you show us some of your stitching soon.
I think I know you a little from GK Yahoo group, I have not yet decided if I want to start a GK pattern so I stay a passive reader.
Have a nice weekend,
Olga

Thanks MarchAnn. I have lots of pics up on my Multiply site, but I rarely post them here. I blog on both sites, and so I copy and paste that blog entry to this one, with links for the pics. I just posted one a couple of days ago, so I won't be posting another one anytime soon. If you want to look at my pics, you can go to www.mdgtjulie.multiply.com. I have maybe ten WIPs and UFOs, and you can see pics of my progress on all of them on my Multiply site!! Ineke, you're right. I love to do it as I have AADD and bipolar disorder. My brain is much happier when I have two things to focus on. If I only have one, it can't hold my attention and I drift off into my head to find myself daydreaming and listening to the music in there, lol. But this time, it didn't bother me at all. I really got a lot done that day!! Okay Debra. I have a really good friend (gemsbyjules.etsy.com) who does beadweaving. She makes some of her own patterns, but she also buys some, so I thought she'd like to have a look at your site. Maybe a new customer, lol. I'm always giving her bead money to go learn new stitches and then having her make things for me. I pay for the class and materials, she puts in the time, we're even. That's how she learned the German Spiral and ... I can't remember the other one. Anyways, I'll pass on your site to her. You're welcome Olga. And thanks. If you mean Intricate Cross Stitch, you're right. I'm there, but it's so rare that anyone posts there. I should send in a post with my Chatelaine progress. I always forget that group as I don't get emails from there!!
