on topic reading by Cheryl Isaak
Book to recommend - even though I'm still in the middle of it. The Ruins of Lace is about the lace trade in 17th century France and Flanders Even the story switches point of view, it flows ago nicely. It is frightening what people did for lace and worse to the lace makers

Finally, a finish by Karen C
Between being sick and scattering my time among projects, it's been a while since I finished anything. It's a cute little npt angel ornament meant to roll into a cone, but now I have to figure out how to finish it -- as is, or do I glue it to cardboard first? And how do I "hem up her...

Male Stitchers by Karen C

not project help - but storage of stitched item by Cheryl Isaak
Okay - have decided it was just plain old time to do something about the "stuff" in the basement (have already donated 3 bags and 5 boxes of stuff to the local thrift shop, + 100 books to library sales room)...but have a issue with this find. Some of my MILs linens got stored in card board and...

RCTN activity by Jacqueline[_3_]
Is it my newsreader, or are there only a few posts a day? Until recently, I hadn't been active here for several years, and back then there were maybe 25 - 50 posts a day (very rough estimate!). Is it really that quiet now? Jacqueline in Middlemount QLD

What I'm reading by Karen C
"Love and Capital" -- the love story of Jenny and Karl Marx. Intriguing trivia, while he was railing against the moneyed class, he was being supported by his mother-in-law, the Baroness of Westphalia. Why didn't anyone mention that when I was a political science major? Yesterday I went to a...

Needlework System 4 by Jacqueline[_3_]
Is anyone using the Needlework System 4 stand? Any comments, likes, dislikes? My old Grip-it stand needs replaced, and I'm leaning toward the Needlework System 4. Unfortunately I don't live anywhere near an LNS where I could try it. In fact, I'm not sure I can find one in Australia, may have to...

Everyone OK back East? by Liz from Humbug[_2_]
I hope everyone is OK back there - getting lots of stitching done by generator or kerosene lamp! I almost feel guilty sitting here in southern Oregon with sunshine coming through my window. :-)

actually got some major stitching time in by Cheryl Isaak
While "watching" the Super Bowl. At least the game was good because the ads weren't as fun as in years past. Liked the VW one with the white guy with the Jamaican accent and the Taco Bell one with the senior citizens. But none that were "oh I want to see that one again". Did stitch quite a bit...

Happy Dances by [email protected]
Hi, anyone here remember me? I haven't been 'on' RCTN for quite some time but I am still stitching away... In 2012 I had a few finishes: Ross's Appaloosa, a Goldfinch from Janet Powers, a little house from Cross Stich and Needlwork's Nov 2011 issue, an Owl from the Nov 2012 issue, Lauren's Voice...

off topic reading by Cheryl Isaak
Just finished "The Holy and the Broken" - it's about Leonard Cohen and his song Hallelujah. Amazing book. Loved the song before Jeff Buckley sang it, before Shrek and still love it. The place the song seems to hold in so many hearts amazed me. Loved k.d. lang's version, found John Cale's...
