Just last week I finished Adrienne Martini’s latest book, Sweater Quest, and although it was about knitting, it spoke to me because its questions and its philosophy could apply to most creative work, and in particular to handcrafts. Adrienne explores why knitters knit, and we stitchers could ask ourselves the same question. Why do we stitch? And we can address this in many different ways.
Then that got me to thinking back to when we had the Stitching Bloggers Question of the Week, and I realized that I hadn’t seen it for quite some time. It turns out that it’s been sleeping for a while (a couple of years, anyway). Like so many of these projects, it’s not easy for one person to keep it going. Life gets in the way, or things change, or we go off in another direction. Anyway, I contacted the SBQ’s previous host, Renee, who was very gracious and told me to go ahead and run with it again.
I’ll be making one big change though – I’ll be asking a Stitching Bloggers Question of the Month.
So, starting with the first Monday of May (May 3) , I’ll be asking Questions again, and I’ll post one each month for you to think about and answer in your own blog. I may recycle some of the previous questions, too, because some of you may be new to blogging and you haven’t seen them before. And some of you long time bloggers may find that now your answers have changed, too. I know that for me, many things have changed in the past two years. You too?
And now I’m leavin’ on a jet plane…
