What does my blog name say about me? Is it a true representation of what i blog about? I was thinking about this as i uploaded this weeks pics to show you what i've been doing.
My blog started off as Julie's Stitching Journal, thats me and it said what it was about, a journal of my stitching. A way to remind me of what projects i had done, when and how long they had taken and i was also able to share with other stitchers.
Soon i had found the knitting bug again as well as stitching especially when i started to send out lots of the bunny's. I decided on a name change then to Julie's Stitchyknitter Journal. That was ok too, there was still stitching and knitting being blogged about. More things were added to the sidebar when i was reading other blogs and found something that i thought would be a good idea to have on mine. Pics of my 'fluffy boys' brightened it up and a list of what i have been reading as well as the projects i have finished too. As my memory becomes 'forgetful' with ageing years, i added a 'reminders for the month' bit, no way would i be able to forget the projects that must be done that month. This month i've made another celebration bunny for a 50th golden wedding anniversary, that note never even made it onto the reminder list LOL
Recently, i seem to be waffling about all sorts on here, and there is not much stitching being shown at all. Is it the summer months causing the lack of stitching? or is it that i have found something else that i would rather be doing instead of stitching?
Desperate to try knitting a pair of socks, the first pair on 2 needles were a success and then more recently, a very loud and exhausting happy dance when i managed to make my first pair on 4 needles, that was really exciting.... i know, who gets excited about a pair of socks!! Now of course i've been learning something else new, the crochet project. The sample experimental granny squares started something off, my brain was keen to learn more of this.
Seeing a lot of wonderful things being created with the 'hook' and being directed over to Lucy @ Attic 24 was such inspiration, she has the most wonderful tutorials on her blog and lots of brightly coloured pics which are so easy to follow. Thanks Lucy, i was able to make my very first LUCY BAG using your pattern. I am thrilled with it, it's so bright and colourful and was fun to make.... does this mean i should have a change of blog name again to include crochet? I love these little crochet flowers and leaves, who would have thought little old me would be able to conjour up these cuties from oddments of wool with a little bit of time and effort.
This brings me to my question to you .... why did you choose your blog name? does it represent what your blog is about? how often do you change colours/style of your blog? do you mind if a blogger keeps the same design forever (yes, i know that's my blog, i'm a techno scaredy cat that gets all flustered and breaks out into a sweat with fright that i might loose everything if i altered it).
All these questions that popped into my mind as i was waiting for blogger to upload 2 little pics to show you.
I'm sure i was going to write something else today, maybe i better take one of these memory mints that DH had for his birthday on Thursday and see if i can remember what it was, never mind there's always next time...
Rambling and waffling over for today but i will just drop out one bit of good news. Amy now has a 100% fully functioning toilet! We are just waiting for the painters to finish off their work and they are scheduled for 23rd of this month. That date can't come quick enough i can tell you, then we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Thanks for stopping by, if you have any suggestions that you think would improve my blog for you readers, feel free to say so, otherwise i'll just continue skipping along my own little path happily learning new things on my journey of crafting and share it with you.
