Why is it called Needles in my sleeve?

So, you're probably wondering why "needles in my sleeve"? Well, first let me preface with, I am terrible at coming up with names for things like this. This is actually a very bad habit I have developed. I tend to put my needles in my t-shirt sleeve if I am changing threads or just need a place for a needle. The problem is that I usually forget I put it (them) there. I found one in the lint catcher in my dryer yesterday. I had 2 in my sleeve tonight but thankfully remembered to put them in my needle holder; what an idea!

Welcome to my blog!

Hi. I guess it was time to create a blog to share my favorite things; crafts, books, and my cats. This is mostly about my craft passions; cross stitch, quilting, and punchneedle. I have seen other blogs that show the progress of cross stitch projects, which is so cool. My friend Sue and I are planning on stitching in tandem soon so we can help motivate each other to stitch, stitch, stitch. I seem to be hording as many cross stitch patterns, fabrics, especially hand-dyed, and fabrics for quilting as I can. (And it's getting ridiculous). I say I am getting ready for retirement but I am only 34. At the rate I am going, I will be able to open a store by the time I am 40. :) But, that's the fun part, right?
