A Type A personality down to my fingertips, I find it hard to slow down. And while these past 20+ years of living with MS have done much to help me accept a slower, much slower life, I do tend to pile things on.
When this happens God gives me startling wake up calls that help me to think, rest, and change. Not surprisingly what’s been happening to me is a good example of this, if not one of the worst ones. I find it semi-astonishing that I have gone 18+ years without one of these.
I found that my health difficulties that would keep me from working would also give me distance from the daily grind and I could think and plan. I suspect that at least part of the reason for the wake-up calls beyond my pig-headedness.
I’ve been thinking while I stitch and read. And I’m going to slow down. You guys deserve better than my distraction. Beginning now there will be changes on my blogs and in my shop.
Nuts about Needlepoint will be updated daily. Mondays & Thursdays will have new content. Tuesdays & Fridays will have updated reposts of great content from the past, 10+ years of it. Wednesdays & Saturdays will highlight content from around the Web. Sundays will be Stash Sundays. Although there will be free projects and stitch guides this year, they will not be on a set schedule.
Needlepoint News will be updated three times a day at 9, 2, and 7 Pacific time.
Stitch of the Month will go on-line this spring and will be updated on the 1st and 15th of each month.
I am going to close the Thinkific classroom and all my courses will be available on Etsy, probably by early in February. While Thinkific is fine, it’s just too expensive. Since you guys are going to Etsy, I’m going where you are. We do not need more platforms in our lives.
Once I get some brain bandwidth I will be announcing project classes using painted canvases. Watch for the announcements.
Now back to stitching and recovering . . .
