Stitching progress 7/12
So here is my progress so far.
I took a petit summer vacation this week (3-day weekend), and did almost nothing but stitch.
There are so many other things to do- answer emails, add new members (mostly links), going to the linked blogs to say hi...sending progress pictures to Jacqueline..
In the Needleprint blog, Jacqueline shoots off articles so fast it is all I can do to keep up with the translations, let alone make smart remarks about what is written in them.
I surf over the French SAL blog and Paule seems to be writing informative articles on her own sometimes, which I really admire.
At work, these past two weeks had been a nightmare, so this business provided a pleasant getaway.
Simply sitting down and taking time to stitch away is healing.
I had been reading the US SAL blog which has exceeded its 100 members with many on the waiting list (how does that blog work, I would be very interested in knowing..I don't think we have such thing in Japanese blogs. Or is it just a matter of using a blogspot blog and writing in Japanese?).
A few members have stitching to share, but a majority were still in the process of ordering fabrics or were undecided on the colors.
In comparison I would think that the Japanese SAL members - those posting in the blog anyway - started up very quickly and are progressing fast, even for those who had to buy fabrics from overseas.
There are members who stitch on other WIPs and still keep up with the chart release!
(I have tried working on WIPs on rotation like the American stitchers, it did not work)
Is it just a matter of individuals? Or does it have something to do with the Japanese nature of quickly reacting and working away dilligently?
