Confessions of a Floss Licker

I'm the new owner of a bulletin board!

As anyone who knows me and my habits at all, you would know that I'm a Rotation Stitcher. I have a hard time sticking with one project and one project only all the way through. I just get bored. With the design, the colors, whether there are lots of fractional stitches, confetti, or even large blocks of just one color. I get bored. So I move on to something that's totally different. I thrive on variety!

So when I saw the notice on the Rotation Stitchers bulletin board that the owner wanted to step down I thought this would be a great fit for me.

I'm passionate about my stitching. It's the second love of my life - my daughter is the first. :) I do believe that this is something I'll happily be doing until I leave this earth. It's very calming to me to put a needle and thread through fabric. There's anticipation and excitement starting a new project and the satisfaction in getting a project done. Not to mention giving a stitched gift and feeling the joy and appreciation from the recipient. (Especially giving something to someone you haven't gifted before. I gifted a friend for his birthday and he was quite appreciative of the time and effort I put into his project. He told me he thinks I'm quite talented and couldn't believe I did everything by hand including doing the framing myself.) :)

I also appreciate the historical aspect of it as well. It's a craft that's been handed down from generation to generation. I have taught my daughter how to stitch and my "2nd" daughter (child of best friends) stitches as well. I try to encourage them both as much as possible.

Honestly, I was very surprised when I got the response from the previous board owner telling me that I was the only one who "raised my hand" for lack of a better term. There are many in the stitching community and quite a few who are "chatting" on these bulletin boards. But I understand that everyone doesn't always have enough time to devote to something like this. If you're passionate then you make time. Which I guess is what I'm doing.

So if there's anyone out there who hasn't been there or is interested enough to check it out - I'm the new owner of the Rotation Stitchers bulletin board at Our focus is our stitching and we use the Golden Rule: Treat others as you wish to be treated. And I hope everyone continues to contribute to the overall stitching community.


  • Congratulations and thanks for 'putting your hand up' as you phrased it. I've been hanging around the rotation BB for years and I'm glad you want to keep it going.
