Which means that my posts in November will probably be less frequent than they are now: (1)because I'll be using my computer time to write, (2)because I will have minimal knitting/stitching progress(see #1), and (3)because my family will need some time to bond with their sleep deprived, caffeine fueled, zombie of a mom/wife(see #1). I figure that most of my writing will have to be done at night after the kiddos are in bed; so it's time to stock up on coffee, tea, and diet Pepsi. But what an accomplishment it will be if I can complete the challenge. Any other aspiring novelists-to-be willing to take the 50,000 word leap?
Today's "Stitching Blogger's Question" was suggested by Outi (http://
www.livejournal.com/users/snowprincipessa/) and is:
How do you `non-hoopists' who use a rotation system handle it (as it
seems to be lot easier if you are in good terms with hoop)? Do you
have several scroll frames? Do you use Q-snaps or maybe something
completely different? Or do you just have one or two big projects and
others are small enough to be kept in hand while stitching?
Well, I use Q-snaps and I have a TON of those. Anytime I go more than a week between stitching I take my piece off the snaps--so changing them out for a rotation is actually no different. It seems like all my projects are big--I work on one I like until I get bored then I switch :)

Here's another set of questions from Nicki.
- What's the worst book you've ever read? Well, there were tons of them in college--mostly from my American Lit. class. My personal theory is that our country is still very young--in the grand scheme of things--and therefore we had a tendency to stick to political type writings which I personally cannot stand; so I think that is why I couldn't stand American Lit. More recently I'd have to say Middlemarch was the worst thing I have read this year--I couldn't even finish it.
- What's the book you hated the most? Middlemarch--that's why I couldn't finish it.
- Is the answer the same to both questions? If not, why not? Kind of because I was trying to limit the question to stuff I've read this year.
- Why was this book (or these books) so bad? Well, I explained my personal beef with early American Lit. above and Middlemarch just blathered on and on and on and on and on--and I usually either fell asleep reading it OR I tossed it down in disgust.
